Hope Village Neighborhood
The Hope Village neighborhood is on a journey to create an equitable, sustainable community that provides a high quality of life for all of its residents. The name of the community, “Hope Village,” grows out of the adage “it takes a village to raise a child” and the belief that together we can create the neighborhood we hope for.
Most of the homes in the Hope Village were built in the early part of the 20th century. Some of the homes are modest, wood-frame structures; a significant number are brick homes, with many two family flats and multifamily units.
Hope Village is home to a number of beautiful parks including the cool cities park, Slasinger playfield, the La Salle Ford Playlot, and Ben Hill park.
The Hope Village is home to many beautiful community gardens located throughout the community.
Detroit Public Library
The Hope Village is home to the wonderful Parkman Branch of the Detroit Public Library – a beautiful Tudor style library second in readership only to the main branch of the Detroit Public Library. It includes a Technology, Literacy and Computer center and wonderful collections for children and adults, and hosts programs year around.
The Andy Arts Center
The neighborhood is home to The Andy Arts Center, which hosts music, theatre and dance performances and visual arts exhibits.
Public art is found in many places around the Hope Village – on buildings and in gardens and more!
Historic Worship Places
HOPE Village is home to a number of historic churches, including Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, Greater Quinn AME, and the former Church of the Madonna and St. Gregory the Great (now Church of St. Moses the Black).
Great place for everyone
An Eco District
Hope Village is one of the inaugural eco-D’s in the city of Detroit. The eco-D designation aligns with the Hope Village Strategic Vision and Plan, adopted by the community in 2016 – it builds on the themes of equity, sustainability, resilience and community expressed in that plan.
Hope Village is home to many long-time residents, as well as to newer residents – all working together!
