About this organization






Life Remodeled exists to bridge people across divides in order to help transform each other's lives. We do this by organizing and executing large-scale, volunteer-fueled neighborhood revitalization projects, driven by the expressed needs and vision of the local community.


Life Remodeled is a Detroit-based nonprofit that invests approximately 5 million in cash, labor and materials into one Detroit neighborhood each year. Projects are determined by the community's needs and vision. Life Remodeled partners assist in three areas: remodeling a school or other community asset, repairing owner occupied homes, and mobilizing 10,000 volunteers to clean up 300 city blocks in six days. The organization's partners continue to work in these neighborhoods for years to come to enhance the schools, revitalize housing, increase employment opportunities and cultivate long term relationships.
