UNLOCKING NEIGHBORHOOD ACCESS TO OPPORTUNITY

Our Mission

East Michigan Christian Community Development Association is a Christian faith based, non-profit corporation that helps people empower themselves to transform their neighborhoods by providing access to developmental services not readily available.  We seek to increase community opportunity and hope with dignity through:

  • Housing search, payment and home ownership assistance¬†

  • Job search assistance and skills development

  • Career and small business coaching

  • Healthy food initiatives, grocery assistance, community meals, and gardening

  • Mentoring and tutoring of children, youth and adults

  • Leadership development, and Community based programs and events.

History

CCDA and Community Based Ministry are not new. The early Christians practiced it (Acts 2 & 11), and it was not until the early 20th century that the North American Church began to turn over empowerment of the under resourced to our government institutions.

CCDA is a current movement among evangelicals helping to restore the partnership relationship between the church, its people, their governments, and neighborhood organizations. A desire to care for the needy should be a result of our lives transformed by faith in Jesus Christ. It is clear from Matthew 25, I John 3, and James 2 that compassion for the poor and oppressed, and seeking justice for them are not the source of our salvation, but should be a visible result from it.

We began East Michigan CCDA in 2010 to help East Michigan gain access to programs that help those in need in a Northwest Detroit community and educate churches throughout our region about the eight key principles of CCDA.
