I moved across the state to the metro Detroit area about 6 months ago. I didn't know what to expect coming into Detroit at this time, but I have been pleasantly surprised by the community and opportunities here. Jefferson charmers is a great place for families, beautiful parks, and safe.
As a current resident of the city of Detroit, I am exposed to the flaws and triumphs of the city. As a community that is on the rise, gentrification directly affects minority residents by increasing feelings of exclusion and neglect.
