GroundWerx.CI consults with community leaders, organizations, and programs in a dialectic process that supports organizational missions and informs strategy within United Way for Southeastern Michigan areas of impact.
As Downtown and Midtown are in the midst of a great revival, the overwhelming majority of neighborhoods have seen little change. Why is this? We believe that social change throughout Detroit will not be sustainable unless it is built upon the culture and context of the whole community. No one has the same passion for a child as his parent... for a business as its owner. Likewise, the passion that engaged residents have for their communities is an essential and available ingredient for sustainable change. GroundWerx.CI seeks to identify and merge the knowledge of residents and community groups with the resources of organizations and government.
