Abstract: This chapter reviews progress made toward the Skillman Foundation’s 2016 goals as of December 2015. The Foundation reports meeting two of its four goals and making progress in the other two in the area of safety; making progress toward three of its four goals, but being far from one in the area of youth development; meeting two of its four goals and making progress toward the other two in the area of community development; and meeting one goal, making progress toward the others, but being far from one in the area of education. As the official commitment to Good Neighborhoods winds down, this chapter updates what is happening on the ground in the selected communities. It also highlights the plans of intact governance structures moving forward and offers examples of success in each of the six communities: Southwest Detroit, Brightmoor, Osborn, Cody Rouge, Chadsey Condon, and Northend Central.

Keywords:   accountability, measurable results, Detroit neighborhoods, community successes, Southwest Detroit, Brightmoor, Cody Rouge, Chadsey Condon, Osborn, North End
