DHDC works in partnership with education, business, and community partners to overcome barriers in regard to employment, education, and health. In addition to quality programs and essential services, DHDC plays a pivotal role in creating long-term change in the conditions of the Southwest Detroit community and surrounding region. Much of this work is done through collaborating with other community organizations, universities and research institutions, corporations and local businesses, community schools, law enforcement agencies, policy makers, government entities, and funders. We believe that some of our most important efforts take place by working between silos with those who, at first glance may seem to be unlikely partners, but who nevertheless have a major stake in the quality of life in our community.

Thank you to all of our current academic, business, and community partners who play such a pivotal role in the success of our programs! To become a DHDC Sponsor, please contact Sherita at or (313) 976-4880 x103.
