OUR PROJECTS
 
 We develop inner-city Wichita!

POWER CDC has a proven track record of neighborhood and community building:


  • NEW HOMES:
    Over the past 8 years, POWER CDC has constructed 90 new homes for low-to moderate-income families in central-northeast Wichita -- including 13 homes in the McAdams neighborhood.   MORE...


  • SAVE-A-LOT GROCERY:
    We have recently developed a new neighborhood--serving grocery store at the intersection of 13th & Grove.   MORE...


  • DUNBAR THEATER:
    To enhance the quality of life, and rejuvenate a legendary commercial district, POWER CDC is beginning the renovation of the
    Historic Dunbar Theater
    located at 9th & Cleveland, in the Wichita's McAdams neighborhood.   MORE...


  • NEIGHBORHOOD BANK:
    To ensure full participation of the inner-city community in the benefits of full-service banking, PowerCDC is planning the development of a neighborhood bank.   MORE...


  • COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP:
    To enhance opportunity in the POWER CDC neighborhood, Friends University has begun an endowed scholarship which will provide half of the tuition, books and on-campus residence for an outstanding student in need, from central-northeast Wichita.

    This "Wichita Alumni Advisory Board Endowed Scholarship Honoring James Arbertha," is named for POWER CDC's founding director, in honor of his work with -- and the achievements of -- POWER CDC.

    For more information (if your web browser has "Flash"), view this video, that tells the story of POWER CDC, and Mr. Arbertha's vision, and the concept of the new scholarship.


Through physical improvements
to human accommodations, and new opportunity for educational growth --
in this carefully targeted,
historically challenged community --
POWER CDC is breaking
the old self-reinforcing cycle of failure,
and replacing it with...

HOPE
,
OPPORTUNITY

&
PROGRESS

...finally reversing the
direction of change,
and finally raising
the quality of life
in central-northeast Wichita.
