Expanding Opportunities for All

Residents, businesses and local organizations in the area are uniting to strengthen neighborhoods.

By partnering and working in authentic relationships, we can ensure that everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Together, we can shatter the inequities of the past and build a strong community for future generations.

Why Amplify GR?

Amplify GR (AGR) is a local non-profit staffed by residents, former residents, and stakeholders of our service area (Burton St., Giddings Ave, Hall St., Division Ave.). Every day, we wake up thinking about this community. We are the only holistic organization of its kind in Michigan focused on a singular community and its neighbors through:

  • Jobs and entrepreneurs
  • Education
  • Health and well-being
  • Housing

Though locally grown, AGR is also 1 of 28 organizations in a national community of practice called, Purpose Built Communities (PBC). As a network member, AGR has built its organizational framework on PBC’s research, decades of experience in an Atlanta, GA community, and connections to other communities around the country doing similar work.

This holistic approach was developed to dismantle the cycle of generational poverty and allow growth in neighborhoods without displacing their most powerful asset: the people.
