About Us

The Garden of Hope Community Development Corporation (GHCDC) was officially organized in late 2008. The CDC is the realization of the vision of Dr. Kirk T. Houston, Sr., pastor and founder of Gethsemane Community Fellowship Baptist Church.

The Garden of Hope was created as a means to provide services, programs and resources to families and individuals experiencing social, economic and moral deficits. GHCDC is designed to be both an extension of ministry and an individualized effort to provide a level of social services to families and individuals beyond what the church traditionally offers in the standard faith setting.
