Antioch Development Corporation
About ADC

The Antioch Development Corporation (ADC) is a faith-based, non-profit, 501-c3 agency located in the heart of inner city Cleveland, Ohio. Unlike many community-based development corporations which focus on housing and building physical structures, the ADC focuses on building people. If you take a look at the logo, you will see three large bands of light bringing illumination to a dark space; that speaks to the heart and core of our mission:

The ADC seeks through faith and works to enhance the quality of life of individuals and families residing, working and worshipping in the Fairfax community and Greater Cleveland.

This is currently accomplished through three invaluable programs:

  • Agape, a HIV/AIDs testing, counseling and prevention center
    • SAMM (Stopping Aids is My Mission) – a division of Agape
  • My FAM, a career exploration program for at-risk youth.

The ADC is a respected and sought after entity in the community and has received over $2 million dollars of governmental funding since the inception of its first program in 1999. To-date these programs have served over 7000 individuals combined.

We take pride in the leadership at Antioch which has taken hold of this vision for social ministry and we thank our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for the privilege to serve as "fishers of men."
