Liberty City Community Development Corporation was established under the auspices of the Israelite Baptist Church in 2001, and incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in 2002 to serve individuals and families of primarily low socio-economic status in the Central City community. Liberty City CDC strives to serve as a vital resource for community needs by offering after-school tutoring, computer literacy, mentoring, counseling, recreational activities, health classes, feeding the hungry, referrals to other agencies and outreach programs.
LCCDC is deeply concerned with the plight of children in our community, especially their desire to achieve academic proficiency in the low-literacy Central City community with a struggling school system. Our biggest projects currently are after school and summer academic remediation programs for low-achieving, at-risk youth. Both incorporate homework help, academic remediation and enrichment in basic reading writing, math, science, social studies and computer skills using research-based curricula, certified teachers and trained volunteers. Special emphasis is placed on LEAP preparation and material lacking in the school programs e.g. science, computers and arts. To read more about the services we offer, please visit our programs page.
