Boynton Beach CDC
Story & Staff
The Boynton Beach Faith Based Community Development Corporation, Inc., ("FBCDC" or Boynton CDC) was created in 1999 as a community development corporation to address community revitalization by providing affordable housing opportunities for low-to moderate-income individuals and families through it’s homebuyer education, credit counseling, and family budgeting programs.
The Boynton CDC offers a strong, stable board of long-term vested local residents committed to the Heart of Boynton in every way.
Although the Boynton CDC’s by-laws provide for social service programs, the organization did not see the need to duplicate established social service program already available in the community like the former Community Caring Center (CCC) establish by the Boynton Clergy Association in 1998, and merged with FSF in 2020, with which it share several of the same board members. It primarily focused on housing programs and is considered on of Palm Beach county's premier Community Development Corporations.
Ms. Keturah Joseph, Executive Director, was hired in 2010 as the CEO of the organization. Her experience included 10 years as manager for PBC's HUD Manager. Prior to that, she managed PBC’s Affordable Housing Programs helping to assist 200 families annually to become First Time Home Buyers. Experienced in development, coordination, and implementation of all affordable housing programs and policies, she administered the county’s annual $10M SHIP funds, as well as, the $3M Federal HOME funding. Mr. James L. Horne, Jr. administrates the First Time Home Buyer program for the organization. Mr. Horne is a certified NeighborWorks Center for Homeownership Education and Counseling (NCHEC) and brings 18 years of experience as a homeownership and community development practitioners.
The FARTHER Outreach Program, designed and coordinated by Ms. Gloria Goolsby, became the organization's first social service program added to provide community residents with on-line assistance to benefit programs like SNAP, SSI, & Section 8 housing as a DCF Agency Partner, as well as, referrals, senior resources for medical equipment, bus passes, HIV/AIDS outreach for testing, youth mentor ship, transition assistance for ex-offenders, and others. The Supportive Housing Program was added in 2017, and provides an 8-bed woman's campus and a 12-bed men's campus for individuals who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
As the COVID-19 Pandemic began in 2020, the Boynton CDC incorporated a nationally recognized "Aging In Place" Eder Care Program, from the Community Caring Center of Palm Beach County, Inc. by hiring Ms Sharon Johnson-Frew, CCC Executive Director for 22 years, and the CCC "Aging In Place" Senior Care Team, including Mr. Donald G. Godfrey and Ms. Michelle Davis White, former employees of PBC School District, and Mr. Willie Drayton, Deacon with First Presbyterian Church Boynton. Ms. Johnson-Frew, has been asked to use her experience to expand the social service department.
