Our Founder

Heroes’ Alliance was founded in 2009 by the late Reginald M. Lane who created the organization in response to the educational and residential climates existing in the city of Detroit at that time.  There were mounting statistics pointing to a failing school structure, an apparent youth crisis, and the never-ending decay of once thriving neighborhoods.  Reginald was determined to create a platform that provided opportunities and access to urban youth that they were not often afforded.  He set out to develop a platform to resource parents and help them see themselves as and become their children’s biggest advocate. And he understood the necessity of creating authentic economic opportunities for residents as a means to rebuild our communities.

Heroes’ Alliance is committed to the youth, the parents, and the communities of Detroit and other urban areas across the nation.   On the foundation laid by our founder, we intend to reach the city, state, and world!
