Who We Are


Our Mission

The mission of Joy Southfield Community Development Corporation is to support residents and businesses in building a healthy and thriving community

Our Community in Detroit’s District 7

The community that we serve is located on the far west side of Detroit, Michigan and home to beautiful parks, including the incredible Rouge Park, a 1,184 acre urban oasis which features 12 playgrounds, 3 swimming pools, multiple ball fields & more.

It is primarily a family-oriented residential community, with thriving, multicultural neighborhoods and homes of a wide variety of architectural styles built primarily between 1920 and 1950 to house employees of the city’s booming manufacturing industries. Active and accomplished community organizations from all corners of District 7 take part in making our part of Detroit a better place to live.
