Riverview West Florissant Development Corporation

The Riverview West Florissant Development Corporation (RWFDC) focuses on strengthening and stabilizing neighborhoods north of St. Louis City.  Since its establishment in 1994, the CDC, which relies on green building techniques, has developed or rehabbed over 150 homes for low to moderate income families.  Launched in 2006, RWFDC’s beautification program creates summer jobs for at-risk youth who provide lawn care services for elderly and disabled homeowners.  The nonprofit also provides free minor home repair services to low-income area residents, a program that has benefitted 780 residents since its start in 2010.
