Who We Are

Abundant Life demonstrates God’s love through holistic community development in the Prospect neighborhood.

We believe in whole-family, holistic ministry, with incentive-based programming that spans from Kindergarten to senior citizens. Through long-term, lasting relationships with parents, children, and residents, we demonstrate the love of God and encourage positive community development.

Meet Our Team

We are members of the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA), a diverse network that has been empowering communities to flourish since 1989.

"We work and pray for the well-being of our city [or neighborhood],” trusting that if the entire community does well and prospers, then we will prosper also.

More About CCDA

Our Community

The Prospect neighborhood, one of five federally defined low-income neighborhoods in the city of Charlottesville, is home to a vibrant and diverse community of nearly 400 families. Since our founding in 1996, juvenile delinquency in the neighborhood has dropped by two-thirds, high school graduation and college-attendance rates have increased, residents have bought homes for the first time, and we have partnered with many other local organizations to bring new resources to the area.
