Community Roots Since 1989

PCFD first began when a group of individuals partnered with City of Pawtucket officials to make recommendations about how to counter deteriorating housing conditions in several Pawtucket neighborhoods. The task force led to the incorporation of the Pawtucket Citizens Development Corporation (CDC) as a non-profit, community development corporation to improve housing and strengthen neighborhoods throughout the local community.
