Metropolitan Development Council

About Metropolitan Development Council

Founded in 1964 as a nonprofit Community Action Agency, Metropolitan Development Council is a dynamic organization known for using best practices and finding solutions for vulnerable people. MDC offers a range of job opportunities for individuals who share our commitment to excellence, demonstrate personal and professional integrity, and optimize human potential and inclusion. Through an integrated approach of empowering individuals to make their own choices, MDC fulfills our mission of promoting self-sufficiency and removing individuals and families from poverty.

We envision an equitable community with engaged individuals, working together to improve the health and well-being of all community members. We want a safe place to live, to raise a family, and to find meaning and purpose in our daily lives.

MDC is a strategic partner with the schools, local hospitals, cultural venues, colleges and universities, non-profits, and local governments. Today we reach out to our full community—foundations, businesses, organizations, and individuals—to help us diversify our base of support so we can continue to provide critical services to our community.
