Osborn Partnership

Our Osborn Strategic Partnership is a long-term commitment that we have made to the Osborn community.

Through a variety of initiatives involving volunteers of all levels of expertise and availability, we are invested in uplifting this community physically and spiritually.

Our strategic partnership is based out of an office at Osborn High School, where a Rockpointe staff member coordinates our efforts. While much of our work is centered in the high school itself, our goal is for it to have impact into the community and beyond.

We value relationships over resources, and people over the processes involved. We strive to maintain the integrity of Scripture in all that we do. We finish what we start.

There are numerous ways in which you can become involved with our Osborn Strategic Partnership.

Please contact us (osborn@rockpointe.org) for more information on current initiatives and projects. Select initiatives are featured below.

Saturday, May 11 from 9:30 A – 2 P

Join us as we team up with community partners and local churches for our next Service Saturday! Meet at Osborn High School at 9:30 A – we’ll go out in teams to three project areas for painting, planting, yard work, construction, and general labor. Workday ends at 2 P with a community celebration at Brilliant Detroit (13800 Eastburn), a non-profit in the Osborn community. Bring water and snacks.

General laborers
Help us clean up debris on the streets that are direct routes to the school. We will join forces with New Covenant of Peace (a local Osborn church). Come and fellowship while you serve. Supplies will be provided but a few extra rakes and gloves are always useful.

Painters – no experience needed
Where once was a decaying apartment building, is now a butterfly park. We need fence painters to help brighten it up.

Board-ups
Assisting the Osborn Neighborhood Alliance in their effort to renovate and restore a block of houses for single moms, a team will be boarding up vacant houses.

Planters
Rockpointe oversees more than 200 planter boxes throughout the community that mark the safe route to school. Teams will spruce them up with new mulch and plants.

Meet at the church at 8:45 a.m. to ride the bus or carpool. Otherwise, we’ll see you at 9:30 a.m. at Osborn High School (11600 Seven Mile Road, Detroit, MI).

All skill levels welcome! Open to adults and teens (12 +).
