Profile:
The mission of the Riverview West Florissant Development Corporation (RWFDC)
is to undertake community development activities that include housing, neighborhood improvement, and economic development in the targeted communities of Baden, College Hill, Near North Riverfront, North Riverfront, O’Fallon, Walnut Park East, Walnut Park West, North Pointe, and other communities in the City of St. Louis.

RWFDC was founded in 1994 to strengthen and stabilize the geographical areas north of the St. Louis City. In March 1994, the organization received its IRS determination letter as a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency. As a state and federally approved non-profit, RWFDC has produced over 150 new and rehabbed homes for low- to moderate-income families on a fixed income. RWFDC provides lawn care services for elderly and disabled homeowners, summer employment for at-risk youth within its service area, and an after-school youth center. The agency participates in the Sustainable Neighborhoods Initiative and has provided home repair and repair person services to over 780 residents to date. RWFDC includes green building technology in its rehab and new construction projects and is proud of its efforts to be energy efficient.
