Tri-City's MISSION is to empower residents in the Southwest Detroit, River Rouge, and Ecorse communities through the development and implementation of community strategies and initiatives that strengthen families and enrich their quality of life.

Our Projects

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

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.

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.
