Helping Communities Work is a social entrepreneurship formed by the Center for Social Change (C4SC), a nonprofit shared work space, and operating in collaboration with the Encore Opportunity Zone Fellowship, which is hosted by C4SC.
We advance intergenerational connections and solidarity, in shared spaces, family offices, foundations and other for profit and nonprofit settings, as a viable strategy to align and achieve diverse social, economic and environmental goals and objectives.
Our goal is to promote the 17 sustainable development goals adopted by all Member States of the United Nations in 2015. Our objective is to help achieve each of the 169 targets that correspond to the goals. The enterprise can also help to cultivate a fertile landscape for place-based impact investing and foreign direct investment.
C4SC also collaborates with UNPRI signatories. The PRI is an investor initiative in partnership with UNEP Finance Initiative and United Nations Global Compact. C4SC also recognizes the value of a collaboration with the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, a global initiative for the United Nations.
