Helping Communities Work harnesses the collaborative and entrepreneurial power of the pen to support sustainable development. We leverage financial, social and human capital to preserve and enhance natural capital. We also support national and community service. Our publications and other multimedia coverage will provide solutions-based updates on our work. We strive to reach, include and equitably benefit all audiences in cities and communities across the United States.
Helping Communities Work is a sustainable development, community reinvestment and impact investing collaborative. We are a coalition of public service journalists, media arts and national service professisonals and their respective strategic partners. We believe that solutions to diverse social, economic and environmental problems can be co-created through cross-sector collaboration and support. We strive to help achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, adapted in 2015 by all Member States of the United Nations. http://sdgs.un.org/goals/
We work to align and broaden the scope, impact and societal value propositions of public service journalism, media arts and national service, assisted by open educational resources and creative technologies. The process is designed to advance diversity, inclusion and equity across a more holistic continuum of education, human capital, workforce, small business, community and economic development. We also support the development and financing of workforce, essential and affordable housing in age-friendly smart cities.
Helping Communities Work empowers entrepreneurship and innovation to serve as central community assets and catalysts for change. Please review our "Community" page for more information about Asset-Based Community Development. We employ a powerful financial leveraging model to build capacity, financial strength and resilience for the essential organizations serving our most economically-distressed populations and communities. http://www.enterprisecapital.info - http://www.trustbasedphilanthropy.org -
