Solid Rock CDC’s mission is to support a revitalized Southeast Colorado Springs that becomes a destination area for living, business development and diverse culture and attractions through innovative community collaboration. We offer four programs: Food Bank, Youth Services, Community Investment Trust, and the Village at Solid Rock. We engage residents and promote policy changes for a healthy SE Colorado Springs.
Solid Rock CDC was created to address needs in Southeast Colorado Springs, recognizing that there are many factors that contribute to economic vitality and overall quality of life. Our organization targets both immediate needs and works to change policies to develop long-term sustainable solutions. Solid Rock CDC’s Board and staff represents the racial, cultural, and professional diversity of the community.

Due to economic challenges and a lack of resources, the life expectancy of Southeast Colorado Springs residents is 16 years lower than the state average.
“This pantry has been such a helpful resource for my family because they give out food with no extra questions, paperwork, or hoops to jump through. The options are healthy and the food is fresh! I am grateful that I found the Community food pantry.” — Kay, Solid Rock CDC CommUNITY Food Bank patron
