Celebrate stories of how Life Remodeled and our partners are combining need and hope to create amazing outcomes.


Life in Osborn is the story of hope for one of Detroit’s most-blighted neighborhoods. Chronicling the efforts of the Detroit-based non-profit Life Remodeled to make a sustainable difference in the northeast Detroit community that once was the most violent ZIP Code in the United States, Life in Osborn follows the project centered on a makeover of Osborn High School, the amazing transformation of deeply depressed, cynical and skeptical Osborn resident Pandora Ingram, who lost a son to gang violence, and the efforts of 10,000 volunteers from businesses, churches and Osborn residents on a memorable journey of sometimes dark urban life mixed with occasional humor and pervasive hope of a formerly proud working-class neighborhood’s attempt to reclaim its heritage. Three-time Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Walter V. Marshall, who grew up in Detroit, directs and narrates the story.
