OUR MISSION

We are looking to start a dialogue with individuals and organizations with a passion to get services where they are needed the most and a commitment to making it happen!

Equitable Communities brings KNOWLEDGE, OPPORTUNITY and most importantly RESPECT to underserved communities. We envision helping empowered, underserved communities promote economic and social justice.

OUR NEW CHALLENGE:

To complete the puzzle by locating banks, foundations and organization sponsors to meet the demand for replication and experimentation that these programs have created.

Protecting, harvesting, and celebrating community expertise, wisdom, dedication, and sense of fun.
Brooklyn Chase Charities and Council for Economic Education believed in our program early, creating an on-going program.
The power of local communities and established organizations creating service equity.
By definition rather than mandate.

Working to find requested services that already exist or developing them collaboratively.
Combining newer means of communication and learning with older means to the benefit of both.
“Where art and financial literacy come out and play.”
Ongoing evaluation where the goal is improvement and sustainability when it is possible; abandonment when it is not.
Working to combine entrepreneurship and stewardship to maximize personal and community well-being
All Chase funding was withdrawn to support a national initiative. Community, EC, and supportive organizations allowed projects to continue.
