CPLC is a community development corporation committed to building strong, healthy communities as a lead advocate, coalition builder and direct service provider. CPLC promotes positive change and self-sufficiency to enhance the quality of life for the benefit of those we serve .
Founded and incorporated in 1969, CPLC was created by a group of community and student activists in order to confront the oppressing problems threatening the socially and economically disadvantaged South Central Phoenix community. Since that time, CPLC has grown into one of the nation's largest Community Development Corporations (CDC's) providing comprehensive programs and services. CPLC established and maintains a broad array of holistic programs such as youth based programming, education, Migrant Head Start programming, employment and training services, substance abuse treatment, domestic violence protection and prevention, clinical counseling, elderly services, economic development ventures, affordable housing programs and numerous other social services. CPLC is a statewide organization with several offices throughout the Phoenix Metropolitan and Tucson areas, as well as offices in numerous rural cities throughout the state. Through thirty-eightyears of service, CPLC has developed an incomparable reputation as an institution capable of providing innovative and effective community and economic development ventures. Locally, nationally, and internationally, CPLC is recognized as an expert in the development of successful programmatic services. Our programs serve approximately one hundred and twenty thousand (125,000) clients on an annual basis. Over ninety-five percent (95%) of the people in CPLC's service delivery areas fall below the federal poverty guidelines.
