PCF describes its organizational culture as 'unique', group from the premise that "kindness would saturate every action in our organization, and infuse everything we did together." The honeycomb shape of their organizational chart captures this unique approach, where everyone "works together toward a common goal, in an environment where every individual can thrive, grow, learn, and share their ideas."
