Mission Statement

History

In 2003, The Reverend Eldridge Spearman, Senior Pastor of the Mount Jezreel Baptist Church, had a vision for the church to create a mechanism whereby it could meet housing and economic development needs in communities where members lived and worked.  He and Mount Jezreel did this by establishing MJCDC.   The MJCDC is also designed to address problems of social, economic, and physical distress in communities throughout the Washington metropolitan areas.  Its fundamental mission is to build livable communities, encourage healthy lifestyles, create viable business opportunities and empower people to take positive steps to their future.

Corporate Structure

The MJCDC is a private, non-government corporation with 501(3) non-profit status under the Internal Revenue Code.  It is governed by a Board of Directors, whose members represent community residents and advocacy and service organizations with a strong presence in the neighborhoods we serve.
