Affordable Rental Program (ARP)

The Affordable Rental Program (ARP) creates quality-housing opportunities for those who, under normal circumstances, would not be able to afford safe adequate housing.  The objective of the program is to continuously purchase and renovate homes within the community.


The Hub is a community center that provides a safe space for residents in the Jeff VanderLou, The Ville, and Greater Ville neighborhoods to connect with needed resources to aid in the stabilization and healthy development of families.


Student Scholarship Program ensures students proactively take the necessary steps to continue their education while minimizing debt accumulation by students and parents.

Valuable scholarship

An education is an imperative to build a sound future. One of the biggest obstacles high school students face is securing financial resources to cover the cost of higher education.  Tabernacle Commu­nity Development and The Tabernacle have partnered to offer two scholarships to African American high school seniors to assist with post-secondary education.

The village

The Village is a comprehensive development area that includes housing, retail, and small businesses in the Jeff-Vander-Lou, Fairgrounds, O’Fallon, & Greater Ville communities.  The development is guided by a long range plan created with the residents and stakeholders living and working in the area.
