Helping Communities Work is a public private collaborative formed to attract and leverage national service funding and place-based impact investing through the integration of business and social entrepreneurship. We focus on community reinvestment in opportunity zones and other economically-distressed areas.
Our work is designed to help achieve the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals by taking strategic advantage of the common timelines of the National Opportunity Zone Initiative and the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which focuses on the 5Ps of People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership.
Our objective is to advance sustainable development across the United States while cultivating a fertile landscape for the alignment of diverse national service initiatives and large-scale, measurable and intentional impact investments. Nonprofit capacity-building through intergenerational collaboration and solidarity is central to our work.
