Shiloh CDC

History

The idea of a community development corporation grew from a dream of the late Dr. S. Howard Woodson Jr. He envisioned Shiloh Baptist Church providing services for individuals in the immediate and surrounding communities. The language that introduced the establishment of the CDC began during the tenure of Rev. DeForest “Buster” Soaries and was subsequently acted upon and brought into fruition by Rev.  Darrell L. Armstrong.

In February, 2001, Reverend Armstrong, members of Shiloh Baptist Church, and residents of Trenton’s North and West Wards created  the CDC as a means through which all people may learn and practice the tenets of self-worth, self-reliance and socio-economic stability.

In July, 2008 The Capital Corridor Community Development Corporation was renamed and restructured as The Shiloh Community Development Corporation (SCDC) (doing business as Capital Corridor Community Development Corporation),  with the  planned subsidiaries of the Capital Corridor Family Life Service, Capital Corridor Education Service, Capital Corridor Cultural Arts Service and Capital Corridor Investments, each of which is a 501(c)(3) corporation with its own independent Board of Directors.  The prime role of the SCDC shall be to provide guidance and oversight to its subsidiaries to ensure its mission and vision is achieved.

The objective of the SCDC is to bring about change in the community through the delivery of services that positively affect Education, Community Relations, Crime, Substance Abuse, Health Care, Employment, Housing and Economic development.

The Vision of the SCDC is to be a model organization that fosters the spiritual, social, and economic development of the community.

The Mission of the SCDC is to support the mission, vision and operations of all of its sub-corps that are committed to improving the quality of life of residents in Trenton and neighboring communities through training in the areas of spirituality, family life services, cultural arts, education and financial literacy.
