What Others Say About Us

CICD is an incredible organization and doing incredible work. What makes CICD an incredible organization is its participatory approach at community organizing that emphasizes a solution-based focus.
    This commitment to transforming reality "with" rather than "for" the community employs a method that seeks to conduct social investigation of community concerns, educate and analyze structural causes of said concerns, and finally devising collective action which will lead to community transformation.
Bernadette Adonis
In my capacity as the Executive Director of HAPHI it was not only necessary that I construct an empowering relationship with CICD, it was common sense. CICD affords us the opportunity to partner with the larger housing system in our effort to better understand and address the housing needs of the community and how these needs impact its overall public health.
   As public health practitioners we often confront global/local health issues including, but not limited to, access to health care, controlling the spread of disease, violence, substance abuse, etc. CICD ensures that we keep a pulse on the role that access to housing plays in all these disciplines.
