Sow Community Development Corporation (Sow CDC) is a minority organized and operated 501(c)3 located on Chicago’s Westside. In the greater Chicago area, Sow CDC is working to implement a targeted approach to rebuilding the Black community one block at a time. Through our Block-by-Block Revitalization Initiative we will be able to strengthen communities by abating the housing issues of slum and blight created by vacant lots and abandoned properties.
John Donne professed that “No man is an Island,” he spoke of humanity being interconnected, so that what affects the one affects the many, and as we abound the race abounds yet when we are afflicted the race is afflicted. Sow Community Development was founded with a charge of “Changing the Face of American Poverty!"
