CFD Purpose:

The CFD is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. With the support of the First Gethsemane Baptist Church, the CFD was incorporated in 1996. It was the consensus, at that time, that a separate community service corporation would better serve the overwhelming needs of the surrounding communities, which include Arcadia, Park Hill, Iroquois, Algonquin, and Old Louisville. The mission of the CFD is to “reduce the barriers of success” by providing quality facilities, services, and programs to individuals and families in our communities through economic empowerment, and educational, social, and recreational activities.
