Mission Statement

The Coppin Heights Community Development Corporation (CHCDC) is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization established in 1995 by Coppin State University to advance the broader community improvement/neighborhood revitalization agenda of Coppin State University -- to be a catalyst for suitable and affordable housing for low to moderate income residents, and to stimulate economic development within neighborhoods immediately adjacent to the campus through the establishment of social, economic, educational and affordable housing development initiatives that collectively increase the stability and sustainability of our community.

Description

Coppin Heights Community Development Corporation works aggresively to achieve its mission by:

· Coordinating partnerships between Coppin Heights Community Development Corporation, Coppin State University, government agencies, elected officials, public schools, social and community service organizations, businesses, and residents to ensure a community collaborative approach to meeting the needs of residents in the Greater Coppin Heights/Rosemont community.

· Developing and improving affordable housing in the Greater Coppin Heights/Rosemont community.

· Fostering economic and business development initiatives serving the needs of low to moderate income and otherwise disadvantaged Greater Coppin Heights/Rosemont residents.
