Renovation of our New Global Headquarters

ICD has been working tirelessly for over 20 years through various facilities, donated office spaces and recreational buildings. Through the driven will of the ICD group staff, they have operated throughout the Metro Detroit area partnering with local churches and schools
successsfully reaching thousands of young people annually in what Forbes magazine considers “the Most Dangerous City in the United States.”

NOW is the time to have our own operating facility which will evolve our purpose and our mission into a whole new level. Our efforts have seen remarkable progress over the years through youth empowerment, participation and capacity building, taking this opportunity we have before us with our own facility catapults us into a full service mission to not only provide programs, but to add a safe, secure facility to house at-risk and homeless youth and young adults.
