Immigrant Development Center
The Immigrant Development Center equips new Americans to become entrepreneurs as a way to fight poverty and live purposeful lives. We provide entrepreneurial training, housing and co-signing services, and micro-lending to immigrants, refugees, and new Americans. We are the only organization in the community that represents the immigrant entrepreneur, and we believe that our work not only empowers individuals, but empowers the community as well. We are very close to being able to open our project, the International Market Plaza (IMP). This global market place will provide over twenty new businesses to the community, all run by new Americans. Along with providing poverty alleviation to individual families, the IMP will be a unique center of commerce and culture for our community.
