Welcome to the Antioch Development Corporation

Our Mission
The ADC seeks through faith and works to develop personal and collective self-sufficiency within individuals, families and organizations located in, or serving, impoverished neighborhoods of Greater Cleveland through advocacy, education and linkage to resources.

We are a faith-based social enterprise guided in our mission by our faith tradition and biblical charge:

"I was hungry and you fed me, thirsty and you gave me a drink; I was a stranger and you received me in your homes, naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you took care of me, in prison and you visited me."
Matthew 25:35-36"

Our Vision
To become an one million dollar social enterprise by 2013, sustained by diverse streams of income, offering a slate of outreach programs addressing health disparities, hunger security, youth and family development and advocacy, to fight the debilitating effects of generational poverty in the Greater Cleveland community.

Whereas many of the community development corporations in greater Cleveland have focused on building affordable housing and incubating new businesses in their communities, we have chosen to take a different path. The ADC strongly believes that we should focus on building people, on building their skills and their capacity to fix the very problems that keep them from buying new homes and starting businesses for themselves.

As our logo depicts, we believe we have been called to light the way to a brighter future ... to light a path for those who are disadvantaged, hurting or lack a broader vision for their lives.
