The Corporation for Community and Economic Development United, Inc.
Our efforts impact neighborhoods in transition where low, moderate, and market rate families work to rebuild and sustain quality housing, schools, and businesses. The Corporation for Community and Economic Development United (CCEDU) is a non-profit 501 C 3 organization that provides technical assistance to develop and strengthen small businesses; advocate for the management and maintenance of commercial corridors and place-making initiatives in low-income communities; develop safety and violence prevention programs; direct business attraction and retention programs and oversee out-of-school time social/emotional and healthy options for families. In addition, the Corporation partners with the local Workforce Development Boards, a job placement provider primarily serving residents affected by poverty and barriers to employment.
The Mission of the Corporation is to create economic opportunities, rebuild sustainable communities, foster leadership, champion diversity, and invest in education.
