About Us

The Villages Community Development Corporation (CDC)

We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to accelerating economic development in the Villages of Detroit, a collection of neighborhoods located on Detroit’s near eastside, the boundaries of which are Mt. Elliott to Cadillac, and the Detroit River to Mack. The neighborhoods that make up the Villages are West Village, Indian Village, the Joseph Berry Subdivision, East Village, Islandview Village, and the Gold Coast. Through business attraction, community advocacy and organizing, and urban design and planning, the Villages CDC seeks to strengthen and preserve the social and economic fabric of one of the most diverse and longstanding communities in Detroit.
