The Center for Family Development (CFD) is a nonprofit 501c3 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 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. Programming is held in the T. Vaughn Walker CFD building, located at 1221 First Gethsemane Avenue (behind the main 1st G building).
