Our 3rd annual fundraising campaign
to raise $30,000 for 50 families
to buy the homes they already live in.
To donate and learn more, go to: www.patronicity.com/tricycle

the tricycle collective

is a volunteer-run non-profit organization
working to support Detroit families facing tax foreclosure
to own the homes they already live in
through information, advocacy, and financial contributions.

We believe in the power of information to change outcomes,
we believe that people have value beyond their financial means,
we believe that every stable family is, in turn, a benefit to their community
and we believe in keeping Detroit at home.
