Southside COGIC, your FRIEND in the community!

The Lord inspired Bishop Robinson to formulate a non-profit 501c3 organization named the Community Development Corp. of Florida (CDAF). The first major phase of the foundation is to create an independent housing facility for seniors: The Village at Southside.


This project consists of a design and construction of 34,000 square feet, 50-plus beds, one and two bedroom suites and studio apartments nestled in a quiet, peaceful, secluded, and close-to-nature environment.


The intent of the center is to help adults, veterans, the disabled and their families to uphold a life of dignity and independence by providing them with supportive community-building services. The center will enable them to live in an environment focused on avoiding premature and unncecessay institutionalization.
