PEC community development programs respond to community needs and build on neighborhood assets to help bridge the digital divide, expand mixed-income housing opportunities, stimulate economic growth, create wealth, and improve the quality of life for all West Philadelphia residents.

In 2009-2010, OIC served 1183 individuals. In order to build upon our history and our current successes, the Board of Directors has embarked upon a 3 Year Strategic Plan. It is our collective belief that if we don't grow as an organization, then we render ourselves "irrelevant". One of the key elements of that growth is our goal to become the primary training provider for the gaming industry/slot machine licensees. We view this as a logical expansion of our very successful Hospitality Training Institute. This industry will create hundreds of jobs for Philadelphians and the preparation for those jobs is consistent with OIC's historical and contemporary focus and operational mandate.
