In 2013, a house was donated to me for the purpose of using it to do community work. Subsequently, the Urban Network bookstore i owned & operated was forced to close because the owner sold the building. Instead of giving up or getting down on myself i have decided to dedicate my time, effort & energy to raising money to rehab the house.
In an effort to extend the work of the Urban Network, i am on a mission of transforming the house into the Restoring the Neighbor Back to the Hood Training Center. This facility will operate as a multipurpose, community-oriented virtual business house. Our programming will educate, serve and empower community members by providing literacy classes, digital training, food, and clothing. This facility, rooted in the Zone 8 community of Detroit, will be the concrete application of being rooted with the people and providing practical programs which will meet the needs of the people.
How You Can Help
i am humbly asking for your support by donating money to rehab this house. All money raised will go towards paying past due taxes, purchasing building supplies, electrical work, hot water tank, furnace & plumbing supplies. "Whatever good comes out of our neighborhood will be a result of the good we invest into them." Thank you in advance for your support. i appreciate you all. Visit www.yusefshakur.org to learn more.
