Troy Community Works! is a community development corporation focused on the City of Troy. The founding members established TCW in 2007 with the goal of using technical expertise and collaborative partnerships to preserve and enhance the vibrant core of Troy. Our mission is to enhance the long term well-being and livability of the City of Troy through a collaborative approach to sustainable community development. TCW works with existing civic, business, and community organizations to support our 3 pillars of community development:
· Strengthening the downtown commercial and residential building stock.
· Neighborhood revitalization.
· Grassroots education and organizing.
Now celebrating 10 years in the City of Troy, TCW is proud of our history. In the past the organization has assisted homeowners facing foreclosure with our homeowner counseling center which ran from 2008-2011 during the national housing foreclosure crisis. TCW has also organized several successful work days, in partnership with national Make A Difference Day and the Troy United Way. These work days focused on assisting our partnering non-profits on repairing, cleaning and renovating their spaces. Our current project, the Coleman-Allen Saidleman (CAS) Building is our biggest and most exciting to date. In addition to the work on the CAS Building, TCW has renovated the East Gate Building, TCW hosts the annual Second Story Secrets tour. TCW actively works with other organizations on their development needs. TCW is a federally recognized 501c3 organization. We welcome donations at any time and are proud to recognize that our board has a 100% rate of donating financially to TCW as well as giving generously of their time.
