Canaan Development Foundation




Safeguarding the well-being of men, women, and children.

Substance abuse and economic hardship are not unique to large cities.  These problems exist in our own backyard, tragically affecting the lives of local families and impairing the ability of individuals to function as productive members of society.  Community outreach is now more vital than ever to safeguard the wellbeing of men, women, and children. Canaan Baptist Church employs a holistic philosophy to empower individuals to become self-sustaining and successful.


Founded in 1995, Canaan Development Foundation (CDF) is a community service outreach organization empowering individuals to become self-sustaining and successful through education, application, and empowerment throughout the community.  The Foundation utilizes the holistic philosophy of Canaan Baptist Church to meet the needs of people, academically, culturally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.


The mission of the not-for-profit CDF is to partner with the community in providing a value-based approach to rehabilitating victims of substance abuse and to bring education to those lacking access to crucial economic and social resources.


The organization currently funds and operates a SAFE House for Men to serve the needs of individuals and families in Champaign-Urbana.
