Many organizations preach their intention to change lives. The Willow Grove Community Development Corporation is one that makes it happen.
Founded in 1990 by local bankers, clergymen, attorneys, and realtors, the WGCDC was incorporated to address the need for affordable housing for low-to-moderate income people in the Willow Grove area. With Abington Township renovation funds, private mortgage financing, and the process of qualifying for a HUD home purchase, the first 3 units were brought on line in late 1991 and early 1992.
Since that time, we’ve received additional HUD funds through Abington Township, funds from Montgomery County with the HOME Assistance Program and the Community Block Grant Program, as well as, funds from the PA Dept. of Economic and Community Development.
After our residents move in, we offer many free services such as financial literacy training, credit and homebuyer counseling, budgeting, income tax preparation, and senior nutrition programs.
