About Us

Founded in 2008, Moline Community Development Corporation is an Illinois 501(c)(3) organization, operating as a separate entity, but in conjunction with the City of Moline with the intent of providing charitable services. The mission of the Moline Community Development Corporation is to foster improvement in Moline's partnering income neighborhoods, and to conduct neighborhood revitalization programs and projects.

We achieve this mission by rehabilitating abandoned properties, improving neighborhoods with better alley lighting, and renovating or constructing neighborhood playgrounds.

As a community collaborative organization, the Moline Community Development Corporation has the infrastructure to develop collaborative relationships between multiple agencies and types of organizations, as well as maximize client participation.

The Board of Directors has representatives from the City of Moline, Neighborhood Liaisons, and the local non-profit organizations (Community Health Care, Bethany for Children & Families).

Members of the neighborhoods we serve provide significant input into the planning and implementation of the projects we undertake to assure that we meet the needs of our community.

Each Community Director works for a non-profit agency that works with underserved members of the community, providing an additional voice for our community members.

To date, all the Moline CDC's programs are managed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors and focused on rehabilitating abandoned properties, improving neighborhoods with better lighting, and renovating or constructing neighborhood playgrounds.

We have the organization to the next level by hiring its first paid-staff member to work with the Board on strategic planning, external relations, program management, and resource development.
