Brilliant Detroit creates kid-success neighborhoods, where families with children ages 0-8 have everything they need to thrive in life. We do that by repurposing houses in the middle of neighborhoods, currently 12, that become community hubs. Here, we host programs and activities focused on education, health and family support for both kids and adults.
Only 15.1 percent of Detroit children are reading at grade level by the third grade, which is unacceptable. By working with over 100 partners, we’ve been able to raise reading levels for children by two grades over one year through deeply personal, relationship-driven efforts. Our work also shows significant improvement in health and wellbeing outcomes for families.
