The status of black and brown boys in this country is a crisis in every indicator of child well-being. The 2009 Annual Report chronicles some of the issues facing young men of color, and glimpses a comprehensive data view of Detroit children, the State of the Children Report.
Annual Report: Tenacious for the D
Too often, the people doing the most for Detroit kids go uncelebrated. This report released in the summer of 2013, called Tenacious for the D, attempted to change that. We profiled 10 Detroit change makers working through our partner organizations to make real change happen for children living in Detroit.
Detroit has weathered many storms in the past 50 years, with the current economic downturn among the more trying. However, The Skillman Foundation believes this city's spirit is resilient. The stories in our 2008 Annual Report are inspiring, upbeat and illustrate how change is pushing the city's philanthropic community to evolve. These stories also show how the Foundation is quickly moving from traditional grantmaker to changemaker.
This comprehensive and compelling annual report chronicles our Good Neighborhoods work and its impact on ordinary Detroit families in six sections of the city. Read it online now, or to request a free print version call 313.393.1185, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
