About the Organization:
Mt. Paran Community Development Corp was an outgrowth of the Mt. Paran Baptist Church, which was organized in 1988. in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn under the leadership of Rev. John B. Elliott. The need to address hunger in the area of the church prompted Mt. Paran to establish a Soup Kitchen in 1992. From these beginnings a Resource Center was developed, where clothing distribution, nutrition education and other services were provided. In 2010, The Outreach Arm of the church was incorporated as the Mt. Paran CDC.
