Embrace Richmond is proud to be a Communities First Association affiliate. CFA is a national professional association of Intermediary Christian Community Developers that provides a supportive learning environment, resources, and tools to those who transform communities.
The Christian Community Development Association (CCDA) is a network of Christians committed to seeing people and communities wholistically restored. Not just spiritually, but emotionally, physically, economically, and socially. Not by offering mercy alone, but by undergirding mercy with justice.
Northminster Church is the anchor partner in the work Embrace Richmond is doing in the Brookland Park Corridor. Embrace is coaching and training leaders from Northminster Church in Asset Based Community Development practices. In addition, Northminster has pledged use of its facilities in support of several community based initiatives and is the host of the Northside Dream Team.
Brandermill Church serves as our Chesterfield Dream Team host site which currently supports the Hillside Family team and Northside Youth initiatives.
Salisbury Church serves as our Food Security Dream team which currently supports gardening and cooking projects in Hillside and the Brookland Park communities.
