Where have we been?

Where are we now?

Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3

Phase 1 (2016)

We recruited stakeholders to analyze the problem, created a beginning set of system elements, and began considering a framework for a Detroit community development system.

Phase 2 (2017-2018)

We formed an Advisory Council, conducted extensive research resulting in a specific set of challenges and created Task Forces to respond to those challenges and develop test-projects for most of the elements.

Phase 3 (2019-2020)

Stakeholders will champion elements of the system, working closely with CDOs and GROs, by “test-piloting” project ideas:

  • Coordination of Capacity Building Services
  • Community Development Career Navigation Model
  • Neighborhood Vitality Success Framework
  • Neighborhood Voice and Advocacy Framework
  • At least two city-CDO funded partnerships

Simultaneously we will:

  • Activate the System Capitalization element
  • Establish a governance/oversight structure
  • Develop a process to resolve CDO coverage for all neighborhoods

CEDAM is looking for new organizations to join their AmeriCorps program for the 2021–22 program year, starting this summer! Any nonprofit, public agency, or community- or faith-based organization is welcome to apply. AmeriCorps members build capacity for anti-poverty and financial stability programs across the state.

CEDAM’s AmeriCorps programs have a variety of options including direct and in-direct service positions, as well as full-time, part-time, and seven month opportunities. Last year, CEDAM’s AmeriCorps members recruited more than 450 volunteers to serve alongside them in their communities!
If your organization is interested in finding out how AmeriCorps can grow your programs, visit for more details and to sign up for the informational webinar on Wednesday, April 7 at 10am EST.
