In transforming the community, we continuously assess the possible impact and processes using the three pillars process when designing programs.

The Healthy Watts 5K Run & Community Walk

For the last two years (April 2014 and June2015), the Healthy Watts 5k Run & Community Walk has brought together youth and families for the primary purpose of exposure to the idea and possibility of collective health and wellness.  This program was designed to encourage the local stakeholders, small and large businesses, diverse neighbors and churches to the Watts area. 

 

The Business Resource Center & Incubator

Our innovative business hub specifically focuses on the needs of small business owners, entrepreneurs,and people in historically challenged communities who are looking to participate in emerging industries. The program provides financial literacy to individuals with the inspiration, organizational framework, and technical assistance and required to build sustainable businesses and promote the economic development within depressed urban communities.  

 

HomeBuying@MacedoniaCDC

By partnering with a HUD-approved agency, our home buying program focuses ensuring that the community has resources and information that is accurate and trustworthy when looking to own their first home. The counseling program incudes a series of workshops to individuals and families centered on understanding credit, budgeting, mortgages, home assistance and down payments.

 

Jobs@MacedoniaCDC

In communities that are marginalized, a by-product is chronic unemployment and disenfranchised job seekers.  Our jobs@MacedoniaCDC program inspires hope for people who have been counted out AND provide meaningful employment in emerging industries.  Our community assessments have initiated technology and career-building opportunities to be at the forefront of assisting the community.  The program provides employment and self-employment opportunities in computer administration, peer to peer technologies such as Uber, mobile phone repair (icracked.com), and security protection services.
