Zion Community Development Corporation, founded in 1995, serves the city of Oberlin, Ohio with a focus on the traditionally African-American southern area of the city. Our mission is to revitalize our neighborhoods through resident empowerment, public improvement, community development, education, and employment opportunity.
We partner with organizations across the region on Oberlin-based development that brings positive economic impact into the Oberlin area.
Our local youth and elders are essential partners in our work. Mentorship across boundaries of age and experience is at the heart of our approach. We harness the talent and creativity in our midst to achieve greater connectivity in the neighborhood and beyond through food, technology, education and entrepreneurship.
