TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 5, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Community Development Group, Inc. (Pink Sheets:ACYD) today has announced that it has signed agreements to acquire 11 separate properties in St. Petersburg, Florida. The closing of these contracts is expected to be concluded during this month and will continue the Company expansion in the greater Tampa Bay market.

According to John Folger, the President and CEO of ACYD, "These acquisitions offer the size and scale to our business plan and will benefit our shareholders as well as the people we intend to serve. The Company has committed over $500,000.00 for the purchase, renovation and operation of the properties, which are expected to house up to 30 individuals from our existing waiting list of tenants."

The Company believes that these properties, which are being acquired from another housing agency, are perfectly suited for the existing drug and alcohol tenants that desperately need program support and housing in order to become tax paying members of society.

American Community Development Group, "The Company," was founded to offer financial support and management guidance to the nonprofit community; including organizations struggling to provide support to economically distressed citizens. "We are excited to work with other groups in expanding our resources to benefit the lower-income and rehabilitated population of the United States," stated John Folger, President of American Community Development Group. "We are currently acquiring interests in multi-family homes, affordable housing, and other high occupancy commercial real estate properties, all while helping members of our community," he continued. "This approach sits well with both the community and our shareholders."

The second focus of The Company is to create jobs suitable to these same disadvantaged citizens, further supporting social wellbeing and entrepreneurship. "With the economy's continued downward trend, American Community Development will continue to fill the need to help the increasing impoverished population," Mr. Folger added. "We are very active within the philanthropic community and plan to use our resources to assist the underprivileged population."
