The advocacy group began research and fundraising endeavors. The lead entity, Inkster Senior Services is a non-profit entity partly funded by the City of Inkster, through the Parks and Recreation Department. They, along with Because Inkster Cares, have the non-profit status to raise funds toward the effort of building a Senior Center. These funds allowed them to commission a Needs Assessment and Feasibility Study. It identified three possible locations (old City Hall, addition to recreation complex or stand-alone next to the new City Hall). The Study determined that the most appropriate location is attached to the Recreation Complex. Per City Council direction, $150,000 was set aside from 2008-2009 budget toward the effort. A request for consideration of federal appropriations, through Senator Carl Levin’s and Congressman Dingell’s offices were submitted.
