City Wide Community Development Corporation

City Wide Community Development Corporation (City Wide CDC) is a nonprofit, housing and economic development organization that received its 501(C)(3) determination status in 2001.

The Board of Directors elected to take the organization in a different direction.  In keeping with the organization’s mission of providing affordable housing, City Wide CDC expanded its affordable housing mission to specialize in special need housing for women, veterans, homeless and continue to provide low income housing for families.  The board also wanted to provide affordable housing in mixed-use developments, transit-oriented, live/walk communities around Dart rail stations.

In July 2006, the Board of Directors hired Sherman Roberts as its new President and Chief Executive Officer to carry out its new direction. Mr. Roberts has a proven track record of providing affordable housing and social programs to families and individuals with low to very low income.   During his tenure as Executive Director of another local nonprofit organization, he raised in excess of $19,000.000.00 in operations and development funds and leveraged over $23,000,000.00 in loans for developments.  He was responsible for the construction and/or rehab of 956 units and many single-family homes that where all sold to moderate-to-low income first-time homebuyers.

City Wide CDC continues to maintain its Community Housing Development Corporation (CHDO) status with the City of Dallas Housing Department.  This allows the organization to access State and Federal funding.
