We would like to take the time to show our appreciation to Comerica Bank... for their continued support in ALL of our programs.
Environmental Change through Community Cooperation
This project came into existence due to the recently documented findings of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality which discovered that our community residents are suffering from toxic pollutants being released into the atmosphere. This is due to the negligence of our neighboring large corporations which produce and/or refine combustible resources like Oil, Waste, Salt, and others.
This offering is a Computerized Remediation Program that runs for 10 weeks and focuses on local youths between the ages of 6 and 12yrs.

Who we are...
Tri-City Community Development Corporation was legally incorporated on January 21, 1999, as a collaborative effort between several faith-based organizations, local businesses, local schools, and area residents. It is an outgrowth of the outreach ministry of New Mt. Hermon Missionary Baptist Church and the brainchild of both the Pastor of NMH Reverend Dr. Alex R. Hill, Sr. & the late, great Reverend Dr. William J. Smith, who served as an associate minister and was the co-founding CEO of Tri-City.
Dr. Smith served faithfully from 1999 to 2015 when he started experiencing health challenges which he ultimately succumbed to in early 2016. His wife of 33 years, Mrs. Loretta Smith is the current CEO.
