Helping Communities Work is a public private partnership composed of banks, municipalities, community anchor institutions, real estate developers, nonprofit shared work spaces and philanthropies, along with family offices and other investors.
We are collaborating to create a social impact supply chain management system, which will align with our environmental, social and governance strategies. We are focused on opportunity zones and other distressed areas in Arizona and Florida with plans to expand across the United States.
We are also focused on the development of social purpose real estate, which includes shared workspace services for business and social entrepreneurs and the technology-assisted construction of affordable workforce homes and other residential and commercial structures.
Our place-based objectives are designed to serve the socioeconomic interests of low-and-moderate-income individuals and communities, advance diverse social impact missions in participating municipalities and provide desirable financial returns to place-based impact investors. We support community wealth building by advancing racial and inter-generational solidarity. Our work empowers families to align their philanthropic priorities with their values and aspirations for a better community.
