Community-based ventures and entrepreneurs that yield high social returns for the community to manage to fund efforts that build policy + electoral power.
We believe community run businesses will help to revitalize neighborhoods through connected families that are given the opportunity to realize their dreams of self sufficiency. Helping to connect families through cooperatives empowers families and allows them to take ownership in models that will help revitalize their community from early childhood through their entire lives, Cooperatives create new economic and health opportunities.
Engage & Enroll
Utilizing our current workforce training with community members to create a network of support for the cooperative to build upon and develop processes and activities that serve the needs of the community. The cooperative will hold annual meetings and will focus on charette styled listening sessions where information is gathered for the benefit of the community.
Food Cooperative Incubation
Families participating as cooperative members have the opportunity to purchase lower cost groceries than traditional supermarkets saving them 35%-50% on their produce. Weekly cooperative training classes help us to inform the community about working within the cooperative model, the advantages of community food cooperatives and how their patronage is rewarded.
