Eliashib Community Development Corporation is in place to restore the gates of community within our city and surrounding areas. It is our desire to help a community strengthen itself and develop towards its full potential. Eliashib CDC is dedicated to helping community residents transform distressed neighborhoods into healthy and sustainable communities of choice and opportunity – good places to work, do business and raise children.


As facilitators of various programs, we work in partnership with local people and organizations to meet identified needs. These programs include individual and family empowerment, asset building, and economic self-sufficiency.


Eliashib CDC mobilizes corporate, government and philanthropic support to provide local community development programs with:

– Loans, grants and equity investments

– Local, statewide and national policy support

– Technical and management assistance.


"I want to express great appreciation for your efforts in making a better quality of life for those who have limited resources to live in a clean and healthy environment. Your time, monies and emotional energy have been well spent on the projects I\'ve seen. Community involvement is vital, as it gets people to think beyond themselves and focus on the needs of others and it can become contagious to people wanting to make our neighborhoods a better place to live."
