Located in one of the most underserved areas of Detroit, this neighborhood house is a place for the children, teens and adults of the Delray community to develop physically, academically and socially. The after school program offers physical activity in the gym and the state-of-the-art boundless playground outside. A comfortable game room has board games, ice hockey, foosball, pool and ping-pong. A computer lab is available for school work, personal projects or just enertainment and a brand new library has many books and a small fireplace if people need a place to sit and read. The Delray Neighborhood House staff work with the youth of Delray to Stay In School using these resources. The recently updated facility has a small museum of local artifacts as well as a mini-theatre in-the-round for people to use. A full kitchen is available for preparing meals.
Delray Neighborhood House staff, as well as various volunteers, including residents and student interns from the University of Michigan, assist youth with homework, run youth group discussions and provide positive interactions with youth. While the Delray Neighborhood House serves about 500 children per year, adult members of the community also use the neighborhood house for special events, forums and community meetings.
For over 50 years, People's Community Services has operated neighborhood centers and provided community service.
