Benton Heights is located four miles from the Benton Harbor city center, which means access to resources is limited due to transportation barriers.

New Heights CCDA was born out of the work that First Church was already doing in the community through their Benton Heights Campus which launched in 2009. New Heights continues to do the to work of empowering neighbors in order to make Benton Heights a better place to live.
