ACP Community Development Foundation was founded by Annie Catherine Pridgen. Annie was one of thirteen children born in Southeastern NC. Her father, Obed Pridgen a WW1 Veteran, left a legacy of love for his community that Annie still carries. Annie continues to pass this love for community to her family.
Annie, like many of her siblings were part of the great migration North, they hoped to build a better quality of life and opportunities for their children and family. Annie and her siblings were raised to live with integrity, love and faith.
As a community activist and civil servant Annie, raised her children with morals and a good work ethic. Annie's strength, and commitment to her community allowed her to raise her family as she held on to the legacy of love her father set for his family. Annie and her sibling's bond remained strong and they worked together to collectively carried the burden of parenthood. This legacy of love continued on as her children, nieces and nephews duplicate a model of being productive hardworking citizens.
Today, ACP has emerged to provide ongoing personal, economic and community development. ACP's vision is to impact the lives of the underserved by closing the gap on the lack of resources and expanding services in Southeastern North Carolina. ACP continues this legacy by loving one more person each day and planting seeds of hope that will change lives.
