The power and promise of the community development corporation (CDC) lies in the way residents can use it to co-ordinate and focus all the energy that people and organizations, near and far, are willing to pour into local revitalization. How does such a sophisticated instrument arise out of the will of a distressed community, and remain true to that will?
