Emerge Community Development
EMERGE is a social enterprise focused on developing human capital by connecting disadvantaged individuals with economic opportunities.
This work is accomplished by activating a network of partners in the public and private sectors and takes place in four related areas
- Workforce: job training and placement
- Villages: supportive housing, building community, quality of life
- Ventures: earned-income strategies focused on job creation
- Community Development: partnerships to deliver mission-driven community assets and special projects
Like any venture firm, we compete, market, invest, manage, develop business, and take strategic risks. Like any enterprise, we have to show value in the marketplace to survive. Unlike most enterprises though, our Big Objective reaches beyond product and revenue. Our Big Objective is to power social momentum, the community benefit that accrues through sustained collaboration and ready access to economic opportunity.
