The HIVE Community Development Corporation, Inc. is a 501c3 faith-based non-profit organization. Founded in early 2017 by a community-minded pastor in response to the lack of local governance, no cohesive community plan or vision. Helping reduce concentrated poverty and disinvestment preceding population growth. Building on the strength and assets of people, non-profits, banks, clubs, agencies, schools, colleges, organizations, businesses, media, government, intermediaries, foundations, and churches.
The mission of the HIVE is to achieve a healthier, more prosperous and sustainable community that is vibrant and inclusive, that builds the knowledge, dignity and self-worth of all people living or working in unincorporated Lehigh Acres & Southwest Florida.
The HIVE as an asset development corporation proposes to spur community economic development. Help bring wholistic revitalization to the lives and environment of the community through pro-active planning, socio-economic empowerment, the visual & performing arts, attainable housing, educational enrichment, community improvement, and strengthening youth and family life.
The HIVE is now in the business of initiating social-economic impact and community change for a new era!
