Mission Statement

FAME Corporations supports economic development through programs dedicated to improving the economic livelihood and the quality of life for families and individuals in the communities we serve.

Description

FAME Assistance Corporation, (FAC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation affiliated with the 19,000 member First African Methodist Episcopal Church of Los Angeles (FAME).

FAME is the oldest Black church in Los Angeles. Founded in 1872, it has a long tradition of supporting initiatives for enterprise development and community empowerment. FAC has been used as a funding vehicle that manages and supports the multiple programs of FAME Renaissance.

Prior to the Civil Unrest in 1992, economic development was practically non-existent in urban Los Angeles. Since 1992, FAME Renaissance has been a driving force in the economic development of South Central Los Angeles and the surrounding communities. For twelve years programs have been developed which exceeded goals for lending, enterprise development and job creation as part of a comprehensive plan to build South Central Los Angeles economically, socially, mentally & politically.
