Community Development

Presented by International Institute of Metropolitan Detroit & Islamic Center of Detroit

WCIP Highlights

In September 2018, the International Institute of Metropolitan Detroit [IIMD] and the Islamic Center of Detroit [ICD] initiated in a community driven development project in Warrendale, the Warrendale Community Integration Project [WCIP]. The project brought diverse community members together to devise a plan, which would improve the quality of life for all of Warrendale's residents.

 

The attached report highlights the work of IIMD, ICD and Warrendale residents. Established partnerships were critical in carrying out the project. These partnerships consisted of leaders from block clubs [Greenview Block Club and Evergreen Block Club] and community organizations [Warrendale Community Organization and Warren Avenue Community Organization], business leaders, city administrators, nonprofit leaders, youth and refugee and immigrant representatives. IIMD is truly grateful for their partnership and commitment to building a more inclusive and equitable community. Without this, the project would not have been successful.
