The New Mt Calvary Ministries CDC (Community Development Corporation) was organized in 1999 under the directorship of the late Alton J. Moore. He had a vision of revitalizing the community with opportunities of betterment for those who were less fortunate. The idea of relieving working parents and grand parents the responsibility of leaving their children locked in the house during work hours insured companionship to school aged children who were home alone. This idea advanced it self by starting an after school program the fostered a partnership with the city of Houston's Parks and Recreation Department and the Houston Independent School District.
