this is heroes' alliance

The goal of Heroes’ Alliance is to build a community of resourced and empowered individuals who see and use education as a path to success. We accomplish this through a variety of avenues with a foundational understanding that the destiny of our city and its residents is in the collective hands of those who call Detroit home.


We hope that something on our site inspires you to get involved or stay involved and help make a meaningful impact that will resonate for generations to come!


Educational opportunities

economic empowerment


The true intent of education has less to do with what we pour into our children, and more to do with what we help to draw out of them.  There is a genius that resides within each one of them.  And their success in life hinges largely on how well we help them tap into the strengths and talents that are already there.

One of the foremost goals of Heroes’ Alliance is to build an army of advocates that will fight for our children and our communities. It is our endeavor to put air under the wings of every child that grows up under our watch and to strengthen every parent to stand up and be the hero that their child needs.
