Review for Pyramid Residential Community Corporation, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Watching the Kirbyjon led development in the Post Oak area of Houston has been an amazing venture. This man has literally defied all odds of the " should have " , " Could have " syndrome and produced a complete housing community from dirt to the finished product. Marvin C. Delaney Pastor South Park Baptist Church Houston, Texas 77033 713-644-1666

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the use of the Power Center for meetings.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

change the scope of South Post Oak to include South Park and the Hillcroft Corridor.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

watching it develop from the embryo to the finished product of housing, a new church combo YMCA.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

On-fire volunteers especially at the Amani school.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand to other communities like South Park.

Ways to make it better...

I were on the inside.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

cash.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Leadership is the key.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

Review for South by Southeast Community Development, Inc., Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 0 stars  

The South by Southeast CDC dba University Park Academy graduated 1,399 students from January 2006 to May 2009 in an accelerated High School CDC Diploma program. These students either did not pass the TAKS test or found it difficult to graduate from high school. The impact of the South by Southeast CDC Education component has return 5 million dollars in otherwise lost wages attributed to students not earning money without a high school diploma. This is community development at its best. Contact Marvin C. Delaney at 713-702-0319 or 713-641-1330.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

colleges and universities, Navy, and Army

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

ask for more money.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the students become succeful parts of the community by joining the Navy or Army and going to college.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated volunteers.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

buy some good mortgage paper, extend its CDC schools across the nation.

Ways to make it better...

i could share it with more people

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of capital expansion resources.

One thing I'd also say is that...

www.universityparkacademy.org is my offering of what this CDC is doing.
