By partnering with leaders and residents in local communities, we can build long-term solutions to poverty together.
Poverty for a family of 4 means living on $24,000 or less per year. Neighborhoods with high poverty rates may not have the resources necessary to address the most important problems in their community. Sometimes when neighborhoods are given help, it isn’t with the support that fits the specific situation.
By centering the needs of the residents and forming a shared ownership on projects, we work together with leaders in the community to learn more about the area. Once we learn the greatest needs, we get to work co-creating the best solution to the pain points the community is facing. We identify and train community influencers, called promotores, who act as a resource to their neighbors, connecting them to the right support. After implementation, we remain connected to ensure the neighborhood has support they need to continue building a stronger community.
