DETROIT (WXYZ) - Habitat for Humanity Detroit will launch a new three-year, multi-million dollar initiative on Wednesday.
It's called “Leaders to ReBuild Detroit."
The idea behind the effort is to help at least 500 families in the community by 2014 through things like house construction, rehabilitation and repairs.
Detroit Public Schools emergency manager, Roy Roberts, and General Motors Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson are among those expected to attend the launch of the new initiative.
The effort is part of Habitat for Humanity's statewide $225 million ReBuild Michigan campaign.
