Community Philosophy


Why We Do it...

We believe non-profit community developers, small real estate development firms and large commercial real estate development companies all contribute to the our community in their own unique way. The ebbs and flows of business sometimes create a gap in human resource capacity. We bring to our clients a short term solution to a short term problem. We put systems in place, train people and build for you if you aren’t in a position to do that for yourself at this moment in time.


Working In Communities... Building For The Future

We value the fact that Communities are created by all. We ensure that the younger, smaller, more cyclical community organizations continue to grow prosper and give as they always have.


Project Community Capital™
Project Community Capital is a workforce and small, WBE, MBE, Section 3 business preparation program that assist public agencies and private developers maximize the most valuable asset we have -- Community Capital.

WorkForce Leverage™
This program facilitates early engagement of local residents to ensure maximum time working on an economic development project.

Firm Advantage™
This program facilitates early engagement of small, WBE, MBE, and Section 3 businesses to ensure maximum time contracted on an economic development project.

Project Community Capital enabled 20 residents to be hired from the community and 9 obtained permanent jobs at the Nannie Helen project, a $22M, 70 unit affordable housing project. The General Contractor was provided with referrals to residents who were ready, willing and able to work from day one of each subcontractor’s hiring. In addition, PCC provided oversight and tracking of individual hires and provided labor to the general contractor as necessary to facilitate meeting section 3 hiring requirements.

Let PCC help you achieve and maximize your economic development participation goals. No longer will you have to say, “We can’t find anyone to stay on the job long enough,” “He/She worked on site for three days and just didn’t work out” or we cannot find any qualified MBE subs”.

PCC makes it easy for you to be the good Community Partner that we are confident you are.
