Focus the resources we have.
Level the Playing Field.
We want the same thing. Let’s invest the effective, efficient, permanent solution. Let’s target our investment of social, political, and financial capital.
“You should talk to…”
Connect the “wrap-around” resources we already have as needed. As people age in place, so do their needs. It’s a platform for integrated, demand-driven service delivery, small business advancement, and job placement with no taxpayer overhead.
“Investment brings jobs.”
Yes, you’re right. It’s “skin in the game.” Invest in the people who already live in the neighborhood as they create community while fostering small business advancement. Monetize social capital. It’s angel capital to give them a chance to become profitable.
“It’s an equity issue.”
Yes, you’re right. Advocate for those with no voice first. It’s a platform for causes to ensure we follow through. Say what you mean. Mean what you say.
