Helping Communities Work strives to increase and diversify the human capital endowment of the United States by facilitating capacity-building alliances among nonprofit, academic, government, philanthropic, business and arts and culture advocates for sustainable development and impact investing.
Human capital includes all of the traits, assets and resources residing in individuals and empowering them to create socioeconomic opportunity for themselves and for the businesses, industries and communities in which they work and live.
HCW missions include the creation of a sustainable development supply chain of human capital and the provision of shared space environments where intergenerational business and social entrepreneurs can collaborate to create and align sustainable development and impact investing strategies and solutions.
“A nation’s human capital endowment can be a more important determinant of its long-term economic success than virtually any other resource. Human capital must be invested in and leveraged efficiently in order for it to generate optimum returns for the individuals and places involved and for the economy as a whole."
