CreativeJunkFood is managing this project in collaboration with Deborah Jones, Executive Director of the Ward 7 Business Partnership, Tina Whitlow, Co-founder of The Whitlow Foundation, and Sarah Cappo, community engagement specialist.
This project has been made possible by the Coalition for Nonprofit Housing & Economic Development (CNHED), as a part of the Comprehensive Community Development Model. The CCDM is a planning document for four Ward 7 neighborhoods—Deanwood, Capitol View, Richardson Dwellings and Lincoln Heights. Driven by a network of stakeholders and residents from these communities, this document will serve as a guide for addressing community needs around housing, economic development, business development, health and wellness, youth development and public safety.
This work is funded by the District of Columbia Office of Planning, the Office for the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development and the Kresge Foundation.
