The mission of the Northend Christian CDC is to contribute to the sustainability of the North End Historic Community by providing a healthy lifestyle with diverse cultural, physical, social, and educational programs. This grant will provide Northend Christian CDC, working in partnership with the University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, with implementation support to restore and reactivate the historic Red's Jazz Shoe Shine Parlor, converting the legendary storefront and performance space on Oakland Avenue in the North End neighborhood into a cultural attractor and community center.
