Cooperative Community Development, Inc. (CCD) is a Baltimore-based nonprofit focused on creating an architecturally beautiful, healthy, diverse, cohesive community of choice built on mutual respect. We believe it is our shared responsibility in the City of Baltimore to foster inclusivity and embrace diversity – from race, gender, and sexual orientation to economic, educational, and housing choice.
At CCD, we strive to restore H.E.A.R.T. to the community by creating urban agricultural development opportunities using vacant, city-owned lots.
Homeownership and Affordable Housing
Tranquil Community Spaces
With C.L.E.A.R. objectives, we are actively working to establish self-sustainable communities.
Access to healthy foods and resources
Relationships fostered between and within communities
The impact of CCD is spread across a diverse interest group which ranges from school-aged children to retirees and returning citizens. The CCD community model is one where residents contribute and also benefit from the collective efforts and input; a self- sustainable community whose activities contribute towards sustaining a healthy environment through crop and animal farming in a sustainable way that benefits the businesses, community, and environment.
