[CDC] Our Mission & Vision
The Central Detroit Christian Community Development Corporation (CDC) is a non-profit, faith-based organization committed to empowering people and creating positive opportunities for the central Detroit community. Our mission is that through education, employment and economic development, Central Detroit Christian CDC strives to instill hope, faith and values while inspiring individuals within the community to reach their highest potential as confident, productive and caring community leaders and citizens.
Our vision is to be an agent of change creating a community of choice. We desire to meet the real needs of our community in such a way that we see the community restored and made whole and as a result people will take pride in their community and desire to stay there.
Initially commissioned in 1994 by churches in the target area, six of whom are presently active in providing building space, volunteers, advice, and direction, we strive to be an outreach arm of the church. Our goal is to involve the body of believers (wherever they may be) in active, grassroots outreach and ministry. We believe that real change in a community starts with a heart change through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Our programs integrate Christian values as staff attempt to live out their faith daily in the community.
