In a fast-paced world it’s hard to find time to slow down and enjoy family. To help bringfathers and sons together, annually the New Breed Community Development Corporation has planned a morning of fun and lasting memories for fathers and sons to share at the Father and Son Fishing Trip. The trip is held atBelle Isle Park.
The trip is open to boys ages 5-18 and their fathers, grandfather, uncles and even male mentors. Prizes will be awarded to the father/son teams with the heaviest and longest fish caught. Fathers and son bond over shared experiences — whether they catch fish or not. Pre-registration is not required, but is encouraged for this event.
Just imagine an evening of dinner, dancing and memories with your daughter made to last a lifetime. Imagine no more. The NBCDC’s Malachi Project annual Father-Daughter Dinner Dance is such an event. This popular event is the perfect opportunity to dress up and spend some quality time together!
Our Daddy Daughter Dance, featuring a "princess" theme. Light appetizers, dinner, desserts, punch and tea will be served. Girls receive a corsage and parting gift. Couples receive a complimentary photo. Dance tickets are $30 each. Photo packages will be available for an additional fee.
Similar to ahigh school prom, girls often spend the day preparing their hair and nails, and choosing the perfect dress. Dad is busy dressing in his tuxedo or best suit and practicing the dance steps he has long forgotten.
The doors open to a magical venue where dads and daughters receivecorsages and boutonnieresand of course, pose for pictures. A word of caution for dads and grandfathers…come to this party well rested! We can guarantee, daughters will not sit down following dinner and dads will be taking off their ties and sport coats, trying to keep up with the younger generation on the dance floor.

Many parents are not happy about their childrentrick or treating. Others do not approve of how Halloween celebrates darkness and fear with scary masks, costumes or activities. Some seek a Halloween alternative because of what they see is a negative influence at Halloween, one that encourages poor behavior.
Parents and Students now have this alternative. On October 31 of every year New Breed Community Development Corporation sponsors a Harvest Party for Community children 14 and under. It is a safe environment where kids can just be kids. There are lots of games, treat bags, a fun mystery house, live dj, contests, puppet show, hot dogs, raffle prizes (including a bicycle), best costumes contest, bounce-houses, carnival games, and of course, BUCKETS AND BUCKETS OF CANDY!!!
The Thanksgiving season is a time we all naturally reflect on our lives and family gatherings, but it can also be a difficult time for families with limited resources. Annually NBCDC shows our community that it cares by providing a blessing of Turkeys to those who may be struggling to make ends meet.

The holidays are a natural time to think about others, especially those less fortunate. The New Breed Community Development Corporation is seeking individuals, businesses and organizations to help provide holiday gifts for 130 children and seniors living in poverty or in low-income households.
Each holiday season, donors are anonymously matched to a senior or family of one or more children through the Holiday Adopt-A-Family program. Adopt-A-Family provides the donor with the age and gender of each child in the family and a brief description of the circumstances that led to their need for assistance. The donor then provides gifts for the family or senior. The recommended that each family or senior receives gifts of both personal and nutritional background.
Adopt-A-Family pairs individuals who are facing difficult times with someone else in the community who is able to share and willing to give. The program cultivates the ethic of giving back and of sharing, which at its core is the strength of community.
This is a very difficult year for our Holiday Adopt-A-Family program given the growing poverty and unemployment rate in Metro Detroit. We rely on the generosity of individuals, businesses and organizations to volunteer or to donate by adopting a family or an elderly person. They provide a holiday to kids, families and the elderly who would otherwise go without.
Most of the beneficiaries are single-parent households, children and senior citizens. They are referred to Adopt-A-Family by a local residents, social worker or case manager through state agencies and human service nonprofit organizations.
