Volunteers embrace civil society in Detroit

People embracing civil society is helping Detroit receive services where the city government has failed, according to Fox News, including volunteers who mow grass in city parks, a charter bus company and a civilian organization that helps board up abandoned buildings.

Ted O’Neil, media relations manager, told Fox News that is an example of civil society, which the Center has defined as “a network of private institutions, community associations, schools and religious organizations, families, friends and co-workers, and all their voluntary, from-the-heart interactions.” Without civil society stepping in where political society has failed, O’Neil added. “failing cities like Detroit would be in even more trouble.”
