About Us

HPCO is a non-profit faith-based organization dedicated to serving children and their families in the impoverished inner city of Highland Park, MI, a suburb of Detroit—a place where children face many challenges such as poor housing, poor education, high unemployment, high crime, and very few positive role models. 

It is our belief that by putting caring adults into mentoring relationships with these children that we can give them the support and direction they need to overcome the powerful forces which work to hold them back from succeeding in life.

OUR WORK

In an effort to address the urgent needs of young people, we seek to offer the following programs.  Each program is designed to place caring and mature adults in the lives of children in order to nurture 'life giving' relationships.

 

These nurturing relationships are formed in the context of our programs such as:

  • Community Outreach
  • Discipleship
  • Kids Clubs
  • Leadership Development
  • Sports Programs
  • Summer Camp
  • Tutoring
  • Youth Mentoring

 

WHERE WE DO

Highland Park, MI is an impoverished city in Wayne County near Detroit.  A city that was home to Henry Ford's first automobile factory that attracted thousands of people because word spread quickly that Mr. Ford was paying $5 per day.  The community was built up quickly with housing, stores, municipal buildings, churches and a library.  The city boasted the first urban freeway in America. 

Despite the surge of the population due to the thriving automobile industry, the population has declined drastically since the 1990s resulting in many vacant houses and buildings.  

Today Highland Park is notorious for poor housing, poor education, low income, high unemployment and high crime.  The high school graduation rate is lower than the U.S. national average.  The unemployment rate is higher than most communities across the U.S. 

While the statistics suggest that Highland Park is hopeless, we believe that this is a community where God's glory can be shown more than anywhere else.  Join us in the work.

Why We Do

It is our belief that by putting caring adults into mentoring relationships with these children that we can give them the support and direction they need to overcome the powerful forces which work to hold them back from succeeding in life.

'HPCO has helped me to develop a personal relationship with the Lord,'

says Birdie Dixon, former HPCO youth. 

She is now a college graduate and business woman who is very active in her local church.
