Delray Neighborhood House

Located in one of the most underserved areas of Detroit, this 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 a state-of-the-art boundless playground outside. A comfortable game room has board games, ice hockey, foosball, a pool table, and ping-pong.

A computer lab is available for school work, personal projects, or just entertainment while the library has many books and a small fireplace for people to sit and read. Staff work with the youth of Delray to stay in school using these resources. This center has a full kitchen, a small museum of local artifacts, and a miniature theater for people to use.
 
Staff and volunteers, including residents and student interns from the University of Michigan, assist youth with homework, facilitate group discussions among youth, and provide positive interactions with youth. While the Delray House serves about 500 children per year, adult members of the community also use the space for special events, forums, and community meetings.
