THE WHY BEHIND OUR WHAT

"Over the past 25 years, Black CDC has gone beyond the norms in terms of our aggressive efforts in developing programs and services that minister to the total person in a holistic manner. The most rewarding experience I have had as President and CEO is what I see us doing with our children and youth."

The Black Community Development Corporation (Black CDC)* is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1993. Black CDC seeks to empower individuals and families through its programs regardless of their socioeconomic status, religion, gender, or ethnic background. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "There is no greater purpose in life than to serve your fellow man." In this statement lies the cornerstone belief for Black CDC to provide services and or programs designed to meet the holistic needs of the community we serve.  

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. It is in the spirit of community that we humbly accept the challenge that lies ahead as we continue to "lift others as we lift ourselves."
