Newtown Benefits Trust

New Direction CDC vision for Newtown is to make it a self-sustaining community that offers job training for residents, livable wages, and steering the youth into becoming successful citizens. 

Our vision is to also to make Newtown a model community that other urban communities will replicate by having a method for their communities to become economically sound, bringing in tax benefits. 


The Newtown community is primarily a black community with a rich history of entrepreneurs, self-sufficiency, and education that throughout the course of time diminished.


The vision of New Direction is to bring this back on the Martin Luther King Blvd. corridor so that it will include entrepreneurs, small businesses, commercial businesses, education, technical, and financial institutes that provides training. The goal is that the money that is spent in Newtown should be reinvested in Newtown.
