THC’s basic objective in developing and implementing a M/WBE business plan is to promote utilization of M/WBEs as well as promote employment of minorities and women in all job classifications. Therefore procedures are designed to seek out and encourage participation by qualified and certified M/WBEs in the development of the project. Our goal is not just meeting the basic requirements. We seek to build capacity and grow the potential of people and smaller businesses that work with us.
THC has exceeded M/WBE and resident hiring requirements in every project we have ever undertaken. As a 100% minority-owned concern, THC’s philosophy is to bolster M/WBE businesses by bringing them as key players in its projects wherever possible. Doing what it takes to include M/WBE firms and hiring local residents for its projects, especially newcomers, has been both THC’s responsibility and pleasure.
The THC Team values the powerful message that the presence of minority businesses sends to local residents, particularly public housing residents and young people — the message that minorities can and do play a vital, financially rewarding role in their city’s economy.
We are uniquely qualified to achieve superior levels of minority and women participation because of our composition and ability to draw upon the reserve of talent we have employed over decades of development.
