Our organization was made possible through the leadership of

Greenleaf Christian Church Disciples of Christ

The church membership wanted to have an immediate impact on the community that surrounds the church. Greenleaf invested its resources to establish Greenleaf Vision of Faith Community Center.

The mission of Rebuilding Broken Places CDC is to help raise the economic, educational, and social levels of the low to moderate-income families of Goldsboro, Wayne County. We do this by offering various programs that provide a holistic approach to serving the family.

We are here to move the community to move forward and not backward.

In 1996, Greenleaf Christian Church completed the payment of the sanctuary loan 13 years ahead of schedule and Bishop William J. Barber, II began developing a strategy to address economic inequity in the community surrounding the church.  This strategy led Bishop Barber to negotiate the purchase of five and a half acres of land and a 26,000 square foot building. In 1999 Rebuilding Broken Places Community Development Corporation (RBPCDC), a 501(c)3, was created to implement the tenets of the strategy.

Through a focused investment over the last twenty years, RBPCDC has created more than $15 million dollars in assets in Goldsboro, i.e., low-income family homeownership; affordable child care and award-winning after school programs; affordable housing for senior citizens; financial literacy, Community Kitchen and Gardens training, computer classes for youth, families, seniors, and job seekers; and training and guidance for entrepreneurs.
