It is our mission to serve as authentic heroes in the lives of our children, both biological and communal, and to cultivate an atmosphere of individual and relational growth. As members of Heroes’ Alliance, we have committed ourselves to being role models that not only draw our children into our world, but that also actively participate in and influence theirs. It is our endeavor to capture the imagination of our children and cultivate an environment where they can grow spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically, and socially, fostering creative individuation and helping them to become self-managed, self-motivated, and self-directed.
We provide support to both parent and child through various avenues that encourage a healthy, progressive relationship between the two. Heroes’ Alliance strives to turn the page on an era of under-involved parents and misguided youth, ultimately witnessing the hearts of the parents turn to back to the children, and the hearts of the children to the parents. Our ultimate goal is to restore what has been lost and to unify what has been broken.
Who we are . . .
We are the unified voice of the inner-city that is breaking the deafening silence of apathy that has immobilized our people and consumed our communities.
We are the advocates, who fight for our children every step of the way and who teach them how to fight for themselves and their community.
We are the models, who live lives worth replicating and who know how to set the pattern that makes it easy for others to follow.
We are the teachers, who are able to wake up the gifts that lie dormant on the inside of so many of our youth.
We are the leaders, who not only possess the strength, courage and tenacity to reach the highest heights, but who have the ingenuity, sophistication and grace to bring the next generation with us.
We are the partners, who guide, encourage and stand with our children as they embark on their journey toward maturity.
To build a world-class public school system
To create an atmosphere of authentic economic empowerment and opportunities
To nurture and grow safe and self-sustaining neighborhoods that are once again thriving
We recognize the truth in the old adage, “It takes a village to raise a child.” It is our vision that the residents of Detroit unite in a meaningful way and begin to capitalize on the power that exists in our unified voice. One person making a stand can easily be silenced. All of us making a stand will be a true force to be reckoned with. We must unlock the power of Us!
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all people are created equal, that we were endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of UNITY.
