Jer sits down with David Silver, founder and executive director of Detroit Horsepower, a nonprofit that teaches Detroit students to ride and care for horses.

This new facility aims to develop critical skills in students, setting them up for academic, career, and life success.

They discuss the transformational impact of working with horses, the five core social-emotional skills the program focuses on, and the journey to building this massive project on the former Paul Robeson school site at Linwood and Fenkell in the city.

David shares the planning and community engagement that has gone into making this dream a reality, including the $11.4 million project budget, the $6.6 million already committed, and the targeted groundbreaking in fall 2024.

Silver alsos touch on the importance of new market tax credits and the various funding sources that have been pivotal in reaching this stage.
