Building the Community One Brick at a Time
Welcome to St. John Community Development Corporation Incorporated (St. John CDC) – your trusted partner in community transformation. Established in 1985, we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization rooted in purpose and driven by the desire to make a lasting impact. Our journey began with a collective vision from the passionate members of St. John Institutional Missionary Baptist Church in Overtown.
For more than three decades, St. John CDC has been at the forefront of change, championing the economic resurgence of historic Overtown and other cherished African American neighborhoods in the heart of Miami. Our unwavering commitment has illuminated pathways to growth and prosperity, rekindling the spirit of these communities that have contributed so much to our city’s tapestry.
Welcome to the transformation. Welcome to St. John CDC – where change is not just a promise, but a purpose!
With dedication as our cornerstone and community empowerment as our compass, we’ve embarked on a mission to revitalize, uplift, and empower. We understand that true revitalization extends beyond bricks and mortar – it encompasses the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of every individual who calls these neighborhoods home.
