Service during the Co-Vid 19 Pandemic
AmeriCorps Urban Safety members are stepping up to show the power of service in a time of great need in Detroit. With the support of The Skillman Foundation they are delivering basic needs items such as toiletries and cleaning supplies to members of the community. Members have also supported food delivery through Gleaners Community Food Bank and Heilmann Recreation Center through the state’s volunteer database. Through CO-VID 19 surveys members are connecting local residents to available resources such as housing, food, health care, water and other basic needs items.
The AmeriCorps Urban Safety Project (AMUS) at Wayne State University’s Center for Urban Studies works to promote safety and to build a culture of neighborly communication and responsibility in Detroit. We work with local residents to create block clubs, neighborhood safety strategies, assist victims of domestic violence, and increase youth engagement and learning skills.
We get things done!
Creating lasting change in community safety through corporate, non-profit, municipal and citizen involvement.
Increasing safety across the city through community engagement and in creating networks of support for Detroiters.
