City Heights Community Development Corporation
About This Organization
The City Heights Community Development Corporation (CHCDC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in the City Heights community of San Diego and was founded by residents in 1981. Its role has evolved as needs of City Heights' residents and the community has changed. In the 1980's, CHCDC responded to deteriorating neighborhood conditions and a lack of community involvement in redevelopment leadership and physical improvement projects. By the 1990s, services expanded to focus on developing affordable housing and resident job preparation and placement. Today, the organization plays a pivotal role in areas such as affordable housing, community and economic development, and neighborhood improvement.
