For over 25 years, Cindy Eggleton has passionately worked in community-based organizations to transform neighborhoods, cities, and lives. Currently, Cindy serves as CEO and Co-Founder of Brilliant Detroit—which was born as a legacy project to truly transform lives by aligning existing education, health, and social services to support families in their neighborhoods. Central to this is Cindy’s core belief that such work should be “with, for and by” people. Brilliant Detroit is dedicated to building kid success families and neighborhoods where families with children 0-8 have what they need to be school ready, healthy and stable. They do this by establishing and operating Brilliant Detroit home-based hubs in high need neighborhoods that offer proven programming to families with children. Today, Brilliant Detroit serves 5,000 individuals out of several locations throughout the metropolitan Detroit area. Last year alone they provided over 32,000 hours of evidence-based programming through the support of their 85 organizational partners.
