The "Sustainability & the HOPE Village Initiative" Integrated Assessment (IA) is the result of a partnership between U-M's Graham Sustainability Institute and Focus: HOPE. The IA was developed to support the nonprofit's comprehensive, place-based effort known as the "HOPE Village Intiative." The Initiative's goal is for 100% of residents living in a 100-block area surrounding the Focus: HOPE campus to be educationally well-prepared, economically self-sufficient, and living in a safe, supportive environment by 2031. This publication consolidates the following six project reports from the overall effort:

  • Applied Research & Service by Urban Planning Students in the HOPE VIllage Initiative Area (Eric Dueweke & Margi Dewar – Urban Planning)
  • Building a Healthy Community in Detroit: Tracking the Impact of the HOPE Village Initiative Area (Paul Draus & Juliette Roddy – Public Affairs, U-M Dearborn)
  • Legal Issues in HOPE Village Housing Cooperative & Green Space (Alicia Alvarez and Priya Baskaran – Law School)
  • Mapping Community Economies & Building Capabilities in HOPE Village (Bruce Pietrykowski – Center for Labor & Community Studies, U-M Dearborn; Roland Zullo – Institute for Research on Labor, Employment & the Economy)
  • Play & Grounds (Maria Arquero – Urban Planning & Architecture; Jen Maigret & Craig Borum – Architecture; Robert Grese – Natural Resources & Environment; Lorelle Meadows & Aline Cotel – College of Engineering)
  • The Development of a Community Based Coalition to Promote Career & College Preparation in the HOPE VIllage Neighborhoods of Detroit & Highland Park (John C. Burkhardt & Betty Overton-Adkins – School of Education)

While many regions of the country face catastrophic threats of sea level rise or tragic outbreaks of wildfires, climate change impacts in the Great Lakes region create more subtle and insidious stresses on the way we live, work and play in our communities. At the University of Michigan's Graham Sustainability Institute, we are working to address these impacts and develop strategies for building more resilient cities.
