PCI opens Poarch Creek Community Center

Dreams are continuing to become reality for the Poarch Creek Indians.

On March 1, PCI held a ribbon cutting to open its Poarch Creek Community Center (PCCC) on the Tribe’s reservation.

The new facility, which was built on old fish ponds on Martin Road in Poarch, was designed to help develop and guide area youth to become successful adults.

“What happens here will have a lasting impact, not only on the current generation, but on the next seven generations,” Tribal Chairman and CEO Stephanie Bryan said at the ribbon cutting. “It takes a Tribe to raise a child.”
The project, which cost $20 million to build, houses the Tribe’s Boys and Girls Club as well as the Tribal Government’s Education and Cultural Departments, which are a part of the Poarch Creek Community Services Division.
