Freedman, Neighborhood
Project staff member, said
she would not say the project
is fading.
"It just means the program
is leveling off," Freedman
said. "In the beginning there
was a lot of anticipation.
People were anxious for it to
begin."
When the project started,
many prospective
homebuyers took advantage
of it, she said.
Overall, 58 percent of the
Neighborhood Project
families are living in Oak
Park. In 1989, about 86 per-
cent of those who received
loans had moved to Oak
Park or Southfield after liv-
ing in other areas of the
metropolitan Detroit com-

Of those moving to Oak
Park and Southfield last
year, about half previously
lived in houses and half liv-
ed in rental apartments.
A majority of the families,
61 percent, had income
levels between $30,000 to
$59,000 and another 54.7
percent had children.
Neighborhood Project offi-
cials also are working with
the new residents to
welcome them into the
community.
Through B'nai B'rith's
Covenant Credit Union,
Jewish homeowners in Oak
Park and Southfield can get
a home improvement loan,

Raderman said. The credit
union has set aside about
$100,000 for interest-free
loans for the project.
It's a much smaller pro-
gram with only about 25
families participating,
Raderman said.
In addition to its loan pro-
grams, Neighborhood Pro-
ject is doing other things to
revitalize the Jewish com-
munity.
Freedman said, "We're do-
ing a lot to create communi-
ty spirit through our project.
We need to do more to make
these people feel good about
the community."
In addition to social events
like the project's Kosher
Food Fair, Raderman and
Freedman help area civic
associations get in touch
with city leaders. They also
speak to area businesses to
promote community spirit.
" We need to get the pulse
of the community. The fact
that we are here serves as a
reminder that Federation is
committed to preserving the
neighborhood," she said.
"We are trying to instill a
sense of Jewish
cohesiveness."
So far Raderman believes
Neighborhood Project is do-
ing just that.
"The mass exodus of the
1960s is changing. It used to
be people moved here, grew
up, and moved out. Now they
want to live in this area,"
Raderman said.
