Florin Square Incorporated aka Florin Square Community Development Corporation (FSCDC), a 501c3 nonprofit, was formed in 2020 to provide community service work throughout Sacramento and Northern California. We work collaboratively with our tenants and the members of the community to assist and support the people of Sacramento and beyond.

1.    Business and Economic Development - Continuation of our Economic programs including The Florin Square Food Court, The Culinary Learning Center; The Florin Square Service Lobby, Small Business Incubation program; and the Event Planning program designed to provide an ongoing stream of Business and Economic speakers and professionals to the community. Our goal is to establish an ongoing micro-loan program designed to assist our tenants, and ultimately other small business entities, with their financial needs.

2.   Education - Continuation of the Educational based program partnered with the tenants of Donaldson Properties who provide After-School tutoring, Life Skills training, Job Preparation, and Cultural Awareness lessons to youth ages 7-24. Through this program, we will provide small college grants to community deserving youth and provide assistance (financial, materials and supplies, staffing, etc.) to Educational based tenants and programs.

3.  Arts and Culture - Continuation of the Florin Square Cultural Awareness project. This project, partnered with the Sojourner Truth African Heritage Museum, will continue to bring ethnic and cultural art and artifacts to the Sacramento and Northern CA community. FSCDC will be commissioned to assist in the improvement and expansion of the museum and to expand the building murals.

4.  Community Development - FSCDC will bring information, resources, and workshops pertaining to Family, Domestic, and personal issues including hunger, poverty, and homelessness. Other workshops will include topics regarding Immigration, Legal Matters, Taxes and Finance, Home Ownership, and Insurance.

5.  Health and Wellness - Overseeing of the Health and Wellness Project. This project is designed to provide physical and mental health and wellness assistance (both traditional and holistic), therapy, and care as well as information, resources, and workshops to the Sacramento and Northern CA communities.  It is our plan to be in partnership with local medical practitioners and the Kaiser Permanente Mobile Health program.
