Active Community Environment Inc. (A.C.E.) was founded and developed in 1997 by Linda Demmings, Robert Mc Duffy, Willie Hood and Leonard Matthews. For the first few years ACE was successful at implementing a construction training program where students learned construction skills through on the job training. We assisted in the rehabilitation of homes purchased by the organization. ACE is also successful in training over 200 students in computer technology, telecommunications, construction and the completion of their G.E.D. Of the 200 students trained 69% were placed in jobs of their training.
