Wimauma Corporation to Develop Communities (CDC)
ABOUT WIMAUMA COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION (CDC): Our mission is to create a healthy and vibrant Wimauma community by engaging and empowering everyone. We envision a diverse and unified Wimauma community that creates opportunity for everyone. Founded in February 1967 as the Citizens Improvement League of Wimauma, the Wimauma CDC (EIN: 51-0625060) has thrived on community partnerships and volunteer commitment. Wimauma is located in South Hillsborough County and is undergoing a major transformation as a result of population growth and community initiatives. It is a diverse community with a longstanding agricultural industry rich with Florida history. We seek to achieve our mission and vision by focusing on our primary strategic priorities: Education, Economic Opportunity and Affordable Housing. We are currently empowered to serve further as a voice and leader in our community and are seeking to bring on the dynamic and passionate staff/leadership support to work collaboratively with our board, community leaders, partners and residents to accomplish these goals.
