| OUR STORY

As servant leaders we willfully sacrifice our time and exhaust

our intellect to improve the lives of West Louisville residents

| MISSION

To creatively transform spaces

towards establishing a self sustaining community

"The Black CDC is making countless "human investments" that will ultimately produce "human capital." Human capital will pay future dividends of children growing up in safe and healthy environments, individuals purchasing single-family homes in non-traditional neighborhoods and rehabilitated communities becoming thriving economic centers."

PRESIDENT AND CEO

As we move through this 21st century, the greatest need across our nation is the building of community. Community speaks of an inclusive society where every person has access to the resources, education and privileges that sustain life. Community speaks of every person having the opportunity to experience what it means to be truly human. Black CDC has created many collaborative partnerships with faith based groups, city and county government, the Federal Department of Labor, and a host of agencies in our determination to increase the quality of life for our communities in West Louisville.
