St. Paul Church of God in Christ Community Development Ministries, Inc. (SPCDM) thanks to the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity - EOGP Grant is enjoying the fruits of its labor as 2010 Program Completers continue to be placed into trade apprenticeship programs.
It's true "Real Men Keep On Coming" and quality programming keeps on placing long after funding has been exhausted.
A very special thanks to Chicago Area Project and the Illinois Violence Prevention Authority for funding our upcoming Youth Violence Prevention Institute for high school seniors in the Grand Boulevard community starting this Fall.
Our commitment to serving is stronger than ever as we expand programming in the areas of Economic, Workforce and Community Development. SPCDM range of services emphasize our mission to Cultivate Healthy Families, Healthy Communities.
Focusing on the "need" has forged our mission and vision throughout the years of ever changing economic climates. My father Bishop Charles Mason Ford and I continue the Ford family legacy of serving mankind that was instilled in our hearts and minds through my grandfather, Bishop Louis Henry Ford remembering
