Eastside Community Network will never waiver in our passion for Detroit's Eastside! We ask for your support in fulfilling this promise, and we thank you.

A key driver in a neighborhood's comeback is the presence of a capable, committed community development organization. ECN is that organization. Our success is attributable in large measure to the consistent investment and support of our community. Without the generosity and assistance of community-minded individuals and businesses we wouldn't be able to serve the Lower Eastside year after year.
