Welcome to Our Journey!

What We Believe

From our founding in 1989 by Eugene Ford through present day, we believe safe and decent housing will always be critically needed. No matter an individual’s background and socioeconomic status, we support affordable housing for all. We are committed to developing vibrant communities through innovation and partnership. That is our commitment and our mission.

Our Core Convictions

  1. Preserving Affordability: Reduce the impact of market pressures and improve sustainability to ensure affordable housing remains affordable;
  2. Developing Communities: Intercede in distressed communities that are plagued by deteriorated conditions and criminal activity and transform them into safe, vibrant, and sustainable places to live; and
  3. Engaging Residents: Support residents with a range of programs that enable them to play an active role in their community, providing them with opportunities to thrive in the economic mainstream, develop a sense of community ownership, and improve the quality of their lives.

Where You Can Find Us

With over 25 communities and more than 4,500 units later, CPDC has established an unparalleled reputation for revitalizing communities across the mid-Atlantic region.
