THE STORY:

What is the Central United Methodist Church of Detroit Community Development Corporation?

Besides being awarded the organization with the world's longest name by the Guiness book of world records (not true) the CDC is NOAH's governing board and organization. 

In 2003, members of Central United Methodist Church created the Central UMC of Detroit Community Development Corporation (CDC). Their original purpose in organizing the CDC was to develop property adjacent to the church building.

After several years of planning their development, the recession of 2008 undermined market demand and fundamentally altered community development opportunities within the city. Central United Methodist CDC decided to table its development plans and focus instead on services to prevent foreclosures and to strengthening the NOAH Project, which pre-dates the CDC and has been well known and respected in the community for many years.

Today, Central United Methodist CDC is refocused and re-energized, as the agency looks to expand its work on behalf of the homeless through the work of the NOAH Project. Its board is comprised of church members, community residents, and former NOAH clients.

The members of the CDC Board are currently: 

  • Bill Goodman, President
  • Rev. Jill Zundel, Vice President
