Detroit Catholic Pastoral Alliance

Detroit Catholic Pastoral Alliance (DCPA) borrowed $110,000 from OppFund to help finance the build out of commercial space in lower level of the 8900 Gratiot building in Detroit. Upon completion, tenants included On the Rise Bakery Retail Shop and Head Start.  This project helped provide employment for low-income and/low wealth individuals with the expansion of the bakery and the ability of working parents to utilize the Head Start program. In general, the work was part of a larger effort to reduce blight in this area and leverage other resources. OppFund has issued multiple loans to DCPA throughout the years and remains a proud partner.
