Cody High: A Life Remodeled

“Cody High: A Life Remodeled Project” focuses on the efforts of the impoverished Cody Rouge community in Detroit to pull together to provide safe pathways for children by removing blight and abandoned homes. In 2014, with the partnership of Life-Remodeled, a Detroit-focused non-profit organization, the Cody Rouge community rose up alongside over 10,000 volunteers to remodel three schools, tear down three burned-out houses, remodel 25 homes of students and their families, board up 254 vacant houses, and remove blight/create beauty on 303 blocks. “Cody High: A Life Remodeled Project” skillfully portrays the powerful stories of community members directly involved, and how their lives are being shaped as beacons of hope within the great city of Detroit.
