Community Dev for all people

Location:

Akron

Event Type(s): Education, Lecture / Workshop
Organization: Holy Trinity Lutheran Church
Description: A workshop presented by
the United Methodist Church 4 All People, and sponsored by Holy Trinity Lutheran Church.

Community Development for All People (CD4AP) was formed as a faith-based community development corporation in 2003 with the mission of improving the quality of life for persons on the South Side of Columbus. The flagship ministry of CD4AP is the Free Store, which distributes over $2 million in free clothing and household items and serves over 20,000 individuals each year. Programming has expanded over the years in response to the dreams and aspirations of the community. CD4AP and its collaborators have repaired or constructed over 400 affordable, high-quality homes and apartments for a total of ~$62 million in housing development. CD4AP cares for the physical health of the community through its H.E.A.L. (Healthy Eating and Living) initiative. It’s a program designed to accompany individuals as they set goals to improve their health.  H.E.A.L. includes a fresh produce market from which nearly 600,000 pounds of produce are distributed each year to over 1,500 families. H.E.A.L also provides health education classes, cooking classes, and exercise opportunities to the community. During the school year, CD4AP serves hundreds of students and provides a free after school program in partnership with the nearby Lincoln Park Elementary School. In the summer, CD4AP provides a Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) Freedom Schools program.
