What We Do
[CDC] Central Detroit Christian
Through education, employment and economic development, 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 community based approach means that a majority of staff and board members are from the community. To meet our selected goals, we have implemented a number of youth-centered activities; have developed 7 businesses; are working on several different housing projects; have developed a work training program for teens and young adults, and have been providing for direct needs in the community through outreach events that we sponsor.
CDC was founded in 1993 when a coalition of pastors agreed that the community would experience a greater impact with a unified effort. At that time the coalition developed the following focus areas: youth ministry, job training & development, housing, and meeting direct needs.
