About Us


Phoenix Revitalization Corporation (PRC) is a non-profit community development corporation dedicated to the revitalization of neighborhoods by facilitating community improvement projects, and the maintenance and creation of low-income and workforce housing. An emphasis is placed on the revitalization of Central City South, a community located immediately south of the Phoenix Downtown Business District and the Arizona State Capitol Mall. Founded in 1986 initially as a project of Phoenix Memorial Hospital, PRC was created to address the historic blight of the neighborhoods surrounding the hospital. We then merged with Casa de Nueva Esperanza in 1992.
