Founded as a faith-based organization in 1992, the Pyramid CDC is focused on improving the standard of living in Southwest Houston. Its first project - The Power Center, a 104,000 square foot complex - currently provides employment for more than 270 people and generates $15.5 million in the community annually. Sixty-five percent of these jobs were targeted to low-income individuals. In addition, the Pyramid CDC developed the Corinthian Pointe subdivision - a 220-acre, 462 single-family home project that cost $173 million. Considered the largest such project by a non-profit in Houston, 80 percent of the subdivision's homes are classified as affordable by the City of Houston and one-third were sold to low-income families who received down-payment assistance from the city.
