Our History In response to a well-researched and documented disparity in established businesses and affordable housing, the Greater Ocala Community Development Corporation (GOCDC) was organized by the Marion County NAACP and Labor and Industry Committee in July of 1994 to provide social and economic solutions to West Ocala residents.
Objectives The Greater Ocala Community Development Corporation will not only develop strategies for growth and increasing economic sustainability, but will support what individuals and families are trying to accomplish as a community. We live in an age of knowledge, a new era in which radically different outlooks and business models are necessary to remain competitive. Success in today’s global, interconnected economy springs from the fast and efficient exchange of information. Sustainable competitive advantage is no longer rooted in physical assets, but in effective channeling of intellectual capital and proper management of the diversity of knowledge within our organizations and communities.
