About Us

What Sets Us Apart

Our innovative economic model reduces the burden of public dollars to provide needed services to our community.

To support our mission of helping individuals become economically and politically empowered and self-sufficient, we have chosen to lead by example. Unlike most non-profits, CPLC also owns and manages for-profit businesses, which help sustain our charitable initiatives. Currently, more than 55% of our revenue is self-generated, with a goal of 77% by 2022. 

As the largest Community Development Corporation in Arizona, CPLC provides integrated group programs and services which respond to the growing needs of the community from infants to seniors. We are focused on individuals and families with low or moderate income levels and complement our services with cultural and linguistic competencies. More than eighty-eight percent of all funds received by CPLC are applied to direct services.
