“To defend and preserve communities, their culture and their citizens’ individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person based upon Common constitutional principles of fairness, equality, and justice.”
The Institute for the Development and Preservation of Culture and Self-Sufficiency (“IDPCS)” was founded to provide a wide range of culture-related services on a world-wide basis. From developing Saturday school literacy programs, retrieving stolen cultural artifacts or artworks through legal proceedings, and building water wells in Africa, to providing affordable housing, the IDPCS's mission is intertwined with the values of justice, sustainable development, and self-sufficiency.
The founders of the IDPCS included the concept of self-sufficiency as part of its name and mission, because the idea of building and preserving culture and reminding people of the needs of everyone to lead more self-sufficient lives go hand-in-hand. In fact, “sustainable development”, by one definition, is considered to be a development that meets the needs of present generations without compromising the abilities of future generations to meet their own needs. In this context, sustainable development includes not only environmental, but also economic, social, and cultural aspects.
The biggest impact of the IDPCS is affordable housing, where we build, finance, and manage affordable, program-enriched housing for families, seniors, and persons with special needs who lack the financial resources to access excellent, safe housing options. The IDPCS domestic and global mission is to establish stable, vibrant, and healthy communities.
WHAT WE DO
We Get Perspectives.
We Build, Empower & Come to Action.
The targeted community becomes part of the process from the bottom-up from day 1, because at the end of the day we are seeking to aid in the cultural preservation of the community. We believe that it is all about the needs and wants of the community and the community’s part of all decision-making.
Part of our mission is to continue raising awareness about the needs and wants of many diverse communities, both internationally and domestically. We will be regularly reporting on our blog the needs, wants, criticisms, obstacles, and interviews that have been made known to us in the course of our efforts to enable an accountable, transparent and open process to preserve culture and the communities and individuals we are serving on a long-term basis.
