Developing Communities Project

Organizing Greater Roseland by Faith and Works

Issue Area: Environment , Human Services
Non-profit Status: 501(c)3
Developing Communities Project (DCP) was organized in 1984 as a branch of the Calumet Community Religious Conference (CCRC) that sought to impact the massive lay-offs and manufacturing plant closings in Southeast Chicago in the 1970's and 1980's. As an arm of CCRC, DCP initiated local action campaigns to improve the quality of life for residents in Greater Roseland. In 1986, DCP was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization under the leadership of its first executive director, then community organizer and now President of the United States, Barack Obama. DCP remained church-based with the mission to serve as a vehicle for grassroots leaders to impact decision-making around issues that affect their lives
