Phipps Community Development Corporation (Phipps CDC) provides a comprehensive network of educational, vocational and community development programs for residents of communities across the Bronx and Manhattan.
Serving approximately 8,000 children, teens and adults in more than 40 programs, Phipps CDC offers on-site and neighborhood-based social, education, and career services including: Head Start, after-school, literacy and ESL, GED, college prep, work readiness, family programs, and economic supports. These services are funded by government grants and contributions from foundations, corporations and individuals.
Phipps CDC is the social services affiliate of Phipps Houses, New York City's oldest and largest nonprofit developer of affordable housing.
Phipps Community Development Corporation believes that people thrive in vibrant communities where there are genuine opportunities. Our mission is to help individuals and families access academic, economic, and civic opportunities that enhance their ability to strengthen their neighborhoods, succeed at school and work, raise healthy families, and become engaged members of their communities.
As the oldest and largest not-for-profit provider of affordable housing in New York City, Phipps Houses recognizes that building enduring communities requires more than bricks and mortar; and in 1972, Phipps Houses formed Phipps Community Development Corporation, an affiliated human services organization. Phipps CDC was founded to serve the individuals and families living in Phipps Houses buildings and the surrounding neighborhoods. At the present time, Phipps CDC serves neighborhoods in West Farms, Melrose and Morrisania in the Bronx, and Bellevue South in Manhattan. Through the combination of affordable housing and human services, the Phipps family of companies continues to help the people of New York City build healthy communities.
