Central Detroit Christian exists to empower people and create positive opportunities in the central Detroit Community. We do this through Education, Employment & Economic Development.

Housing Development

Repair. Rebuild. Restore. Developing a community starts with developing people, but we cannot neglect the physical needs, most importantly, the need for quality, affordable housing. Central Detroit Christian CDC is dedicated to meeting the housing needs of low income families and individuals by providing home repair assistance, rehabilitating vacant and abandoned homes and developing new homes. Central Detroit Christian CDC has been granted Community Housing Development Organization(CHDO) status by the City of Detroit and the State of Michigan, and is in the process of implementing its strategic plan. CDC works closely with our neighborhood block clubs to prioritize and complete beautification projects.
