G7D has been selected for a KaBOOM! grant!

KaBOOM! is a national non-profit dedicated to the bold goal of ensuring that all children, particularly the 16 million American children living in poverty, get the balance of active play they need.  This grant will will fund a 2500 square foot playground in our park on Lenore Avenue. The company that is funding the playground is Foresters Financial, an international financial services provider with offices in the US, Canada, and the UK.

We are also need to raise $30,000 in 30 days for this project.  This will cover our portion of the grant as well as funding to clear the land and put in a 1/8 mile walking trail to add to the park site.  Will you help us reach our goal?  Go to the Donate page and select "KaBOOM! Park Project" as the place to donate.  




Grand Seven Detroit was started by leadership at HARVEST CHRISTIAN CHURCH in 2013 and named “Build It Detroit” in an effort to restore the neighborhood around the church. It has been relaunched as Grand 7 Detroit, to better reflect our commitment to the neighborhood near the intersection of Grand River and Seven Mile. READ MORE.

For decades, Harvest Christian Church has served its neighborhood near the intersection of Grand River Avenue and West Seven Mile Road in Northwest Detroit. This love for their neighbors grew into a vision for a community where families will relax on their porches, watching children play, believing that tomorrow will be an even brighter day.

Seven Keys to Neighborhood Success

In order to see the Grand Seven neighborhood thrive as a whole, its families must thrive. In order to realize G7D’s vision—of a community where families relax on their porches, watching children play outside, believing that tomorrow will be an even brighter day—a lot of things need to come together and improve over time.

To that end, G7D has defined SEVEN KEYS TO NEIGHBORHOOD SUCCESS. All of these are ingredients needed to create the kind of thriving life described in our vision. G7D and its partners are dedicated to encouraging and facilitating these factors through work, investment, and ministry.

Our plan for the future is to work at each of these key performance indicators to build investment, community, and success.

1. Homes  2. Security  3. Belonging  4. Services  5. Education  6. Economy  7. Church

In 2013, Build It Detroit was launched by a team of leaders from HARVEST CHRISTIAN CHURCH, located near the corner of Grand River and Seven Mile. We began acquiring and renovating properties, and working alongside the resident families to turn them into comfortable, habitable homes. Our vision is to create a vibrant, thriving community in the “Grand Seven Detroit” neighborhood. READ MORE.
