Bel Alton High School CDC
Mission
The mission of the Bel Alton High School Community Development Corporation is to rehabilitate our former High School and to establish programs that help people with low income improve the quality of their lives. We also provide assistance with hall rental, wedding receptions, reunions, proms and banquet Hall usage. Workforce development, jobs creation and health promotions are the primary means to accomplish our mission.

Bel Alton Regional Dental Center
We received funding for a Regional Dental Center that was opened in December 2012. Our full service dental office serves adults and children throughout Southern Maryland on a fee for service basis.

Membership Drive
We have launched a major effort to increase the membership of our Community Development Corporation (CDC) to secure more volunteers to help us move our organization to a higher level. We are reaching out to friends of our CDC who can enhance our initial major effort of renovating the school by working with us to expand our jobs creation, workforce development, and health education efforts on behalf of low-income residents of Charles County. We are also in need of assistance from people with business and resource development skills that can help us meet our facility operating costs. A membership form is enclosed by which you can join our organization. Dues are $50.00 a year. You may join online or by regular mail. If you wish, you may also volunteer for specific duties with respect to any of our named focus areas. Some professional skills that we critically need include accounting, word processing. business administration, grants writing, technology training, restaurant management and marketing, events planning, building management, and commercial construction management. We sincerely need your help if we are to sustain our efforts at helping those less fortunate. Please join us!
Donations
We welcome donations to our organization that will help us maintain and expand our program offerings and help us achieve our mission more readily. All board members are senior citizen volunteers who have worked with the CDC for over 20 years. Several board members also serve as staff. We need more volunteers to help us, as well as donations of $5, $10, $15 or whatever you have in your heart to give. Renovating our school has already made a big difference in improving the appearance and adding value to the Bel Alton community. However we must do more. With your financial support we will. Make a donation today. If you prefer to contribute by mail, send a check to Bel Alton High School Community Development Corporation,  P. O. Box 2614, La Plata, MD 20646. You may also donate online.
