From Our President & CEO | cdc monthly - February 2018
You may not know that CDC of Tampa is a member of the national NeighborWorks network. But we want you to know just how important that distinction is. We are larger and stronger than most local organizations precisely because of our NeighborWorks network membership.
NeighborWorks America is a congressionally chartered nonprofit dedicated to creating opportunities for people to live in affordable homes, improve their lives and strengthen their communities.
CDC of Tampa is one of nearly 250 members of NeighborWorks America's network of excellence. Organizations aspiring to join our network are rigorously assessed, and those that have “passed the test” are audited regularly to assure they maintain the highest standards--to justify your continued confidence.
Throughout 2018, CDC of Tampa and our network partners are proud to celebrate NeighborWorks America's 40th Anniversary. NeighborWorks organizations have served more than 8 million people--in all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico--since its founding in 1978.
As we in Tampa cast a vision of what we'd like to help our neighbors and communities achieve over the next four decades, we're deeply committed to working in tandem with our friends at NeighborWorks America to make this vision a reality. After all, that is what NeighborWorks is all about....
I hope you enjoy this special edition of CDC Monthly celebrating NeighborWorks' 40th Anniversary. In it, you'll find lots of great information that will help you discover what we already know: NeighborWorks helps #AdvanceOpportunity here in Tampa, and all across the nation.
May the next month be full of new opportunities for you and your family. And, as always, thank you for being a special part of our CDC of Tampa family!
