Alice G. Thompson, Chief Executive Officer

I am proud of the contribution that Black Family Development, Inc. (BFDI) has made to the success of the Metropolitan Detroit Community. Our programs and services continue to meet the ever changing needs of children, families and the community.

BFDI is uniquely positioned to advance our work on improving outcomes for children, families and the community. We offer a continuum of programs and services that are designed to support our consumer's desires and needs. We are committed to engaging the total community. We are committed to working in partnerships with others to provide the best outcomes within our neighborhoods.

In addition to our continuum of service, our work fortifies youth and their families with the essential historical and cultural information necessary for building a strong sense of self-confidence. As we walk through the early shadows of the 21st century, it is imperative that all people be prepared to exercise their full range of gifts and talents.

We are committed to:

  • Improving the wellbeing of children
  • Improving academic results
  • Expanding positive youth development
  • Improving support to families
  • Building community capacity
  • Achieving Promise Neighborhoods results
