To divert building materials from landfills, the nonprofit salvage and resale organization trains low-skilled Detroit residents to deconstruct vacant houses by hand and offers the salvaged materials for reuse or recycling locally through its retail store. This grant enables the warehouse to scale up its operations to deconstruct 100 to 500 houses in coming years.
