Quality of Life-Final Plan

The Legacy Foundation awarded Gary Downtown-Emerson’s convening organization, Families Anchored In Total Harmony (F.A.I.T.H.) CDC Neighborhood Spotlight

The Legacy Foundation awarded Gary Downtown-Emerson’s convening organization, Families Anchored In Total Harmony (F.A.I.T.H.) CDC Neighborhood Spotlight distinction.


In January 2016, Gary Downtown-Emerson hired a team of community builders: Brenda Burch, Elaine Castellanos, and Michael Lewers.* Due to extenuating circumstances, The GAR-DEN has hired two new Community Builders hired Phyliss Haberkamp and Burgess Peoples. The Downtown-Emerson Spotlight Steering Committee was then formed to help carry out their community quality of life study. The Downtown-Emerson Spotlight Steering Committee is an all-volunteer group, invested in the Neighborhood Spotlight process. Along with the community builders, they’re working to build relationships with local community groups, businesses, residents, and leaders.


Gary Downtown-Emerson Spotlight and its Convening Organization: F.A.I.T.H. CDC


Families Anchored in Total Harmony Community Development Corpora on (FAITH CDC) is a consortium of four churches in the Emerson neighborhood. Initially incorporated in 2006 as the outreach arm of Progressive Community Church (PCC), FAITH CDC expanded in 2012 through the leadership of Rev. Curtis Whittaker, PCC Senior Pastor, and has since launched a variety of community-building and civic initiatives.


F.A.I.T.H. CDC is a comprehensive, grassroots, faith-based vision for the transformation of the marginalized and distressed urban neighborhood of Downtown-Emerson. Started as a vision of Progressive Community Church, F.A.I.T.H. CDC is now comprised of four diverse faith communities (Agape Fellowship, Centennial United Methodist Church, Progressive Community Church, and Saints Monica and Luke Catholic Parish) that possess the unique ability to reach out to residents of the Downtown-Emerson Neighborhoods. The vision of F.A.I.T.H. CDC is to be a voice for the voiceless in our neighborhoods and to cultivate local engagement while bringing together new allies beyond the neighborhood who are willing to share resources and experience. As recipients of this award, we confirm that "Our Voice Is Being Heard!!!!!"
