New Horizons Community Development Corporation

Founded in 2002, by Steven & Valerie Davis, the New Horizons Community Development Corporation is a tax exempt, non-political entity whose mission is to create wealth for the citizens of Cook County. Our work to build and rehabilitate residential homes is aimed at creating and retaining jobs in the county and to enhance its tax base. We can summarize our goals, aspirations and dreams with just one word: jobs.

Mission Statement

The mission of the New Horizons CDC is to enhance Cook County’s quality of residential home life through the creation and preservation of habitual housing and jobs for the residents.  NHCDC revitalizes communities from a holistic approach. Our work encourages economic development and investment, effectively provides and encourages the development of housing for persons of low and moderate income, and works with other private and public entities. 

We accomplish our mission by collaborating with city and county governments, investors and local contractors aimed at creating and retaining jobs in the county by converting vacant lots and foreclosed residential homes into habitual moderate to low income housing.
