Evolution of the Omega Community Development Corporation

Reverend Vanessa Oliver Ward is the President of the Omega Community Development Corporation (Omega CDC) and Pastor Emerita of the Omega Baptist Church. As President of the Omega CDC, she oversees the organization’s mission of providing services that help to develop and improve the lives of the youth, the families and the community of Northwest Dayton. Omega Community Development Corporation is a 501(c)(3) organization established by the Omega Baptist Church in 1997. Omega CDC is breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty by catalyzing change in Northwest Dayton by focusing on education, economic stability, health and well-being and community engagement.  Omega CDC has collaborated with public, philanthropic and private funders to serve thousands of children and families over the last 25 years. We have expanded programs for children to include wrap-around services that address the needs of the whole family because we are serious about moving children and families from poverty to self-sufficiency.
