About Detroit Homecoming

It's about time to come home, to see the real Detroit. Find new opportunities to RECONNECT. RECHARGE. REINVEST.

That's why a coalition of partners, led by Crain's Detroit Business, created The Detroit Homecoming in 2014. More than 150 "expatriates" came home in September to re-engage in Detroit. Keep the momentum going!

Whether you were born in Detroit or attended school in or around the city or worked here in the past, come back to explore opportunities to help reshape the city — and its story. Learn about the new Detroit narrative … experience and visit places in Detroit otherwise difficult to access and understand.

How Harlem's rebirth can happen in Detroit

Detroit is having a moment. With bankruptcy hopefully soon in the rearview mirror, I can’t open a newspaper or check my Twitter feed without seeing another hopeful story of the city’s rebirth – whether it’s a family moving to one of the city’s struggling neighborhoods to renovate an abandoned home or a new small business opening up in the West Village. Having grown up right outside of Detroit, I can’t remember a moment of greater excitement or opportunity.
