Since 2014, SEED has had a tremendous impact on the Detroit community through housing counseling and education for dozens of recipients of the Housing Choice Voucher Program, helping them reach the dream of homeownership.  SEED continues to provide food, clothing, education, and training while promoting self-sufficiency and empowerment directly to low- to moderate-income families and communities.  The organization also provides emergency food and has served more than 150 scholars through the SEED-CDF Freedom School and SEED Summer Bridge Enrichment Program.

Nichole Mattison, SEED Vice President of Programs said, “We are excited to celebrate the great work SEED is doing in the Detroit area while bringing attention to the important needs many in our communities still face. Our partners have answered the call to create awareness about the need for more after-school and summer enrichment, housing counseling and financial capability training for our most vulnerable residents and we’re encouraging more to join us.”

Axemen Motorcycle Club and Wolverine Harley Davidson are joining the community nonprofit as sponsors for Motofest 2018. The event will begin at the dealership located in Clinton Township ending with a festival including live music, vendors, community services, food trucks and entertainment at the Axemen Motorcycle Club located on South Street.
