TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 6, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Community Development Group, Inc. (Pink Sheets:ACYD) today has announced that it will be adding more joint venture partners. There will be several separate announcements that offer specific specifications and terms, but each organization that is supported by the Company provides value added services to strengthen the quality of life for clients and tenants throughout the American Community Development Group network.

The Literacy Counsel of St. Petersburg, Inc. has been providing tutoring and mentor services for those who are reading deficient since 1968. According to Ann Palmer, the President, last year, 80 tutors in the southern half of Pinellas County worked with 87 students one-on-one in schools and libraries. In the past five years, they have helped more than 300 people learn to read. More than half of the tutors — and students — are older than 50. "You're never too old to learn to read," says Ann. "You just have to want to."

American Community Development Group, "The Company", was founded to offer financial support and management guidance to the nonprofit community. "We are excited to work with other foundations in expanding our resources," stated John Folger, President of American Community Development Group. "We are currently acquiring interests in multi-family homes, and other high occupancy commercial real estate properties."

The second focus of The Company is to create jobs and to further its contribution to the economic development of the country, as well as further supporting social well being and entrepreneurship. We intend to follow the successful business model similar to that of Goodwill Industries. "With the economy's continued downward trend, American Community Development will continue to fill the need to help the increasing population by investment into, or purchase of, businesses that offer ongoing employment." Mr. Folger added, "We are very active within the philanthropic community and plan to use our business model to generate revenue and profits while assisting the nonprofit community".
