STRENGTHENING THE CORE & SUPPORTING THE BLACK BLOCK
Core Collaboratives is the manifestation of many hopes and dreams expressed in conversations around dinner tables, public meetings, calls from jail cells, news articles and more.
BUILDING COMMUNITIES, ONE UNLIKELY INDIVIDUAL AT A TIME
A group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common. A feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, resources, interests, and goals.
Core Collaboratives supports the growth and development of city centers by providing business development consultation, collaborative spaces and community building ventures to support local entrepreneurs and patrons of the area.
WHY WE EXIST
Cities have historically been challenged to incorporate the diversity of their residents in the service provision and income gains connected with city centers. Core Collaboratives was created to help support the entrepreneurial spirit and ventures of diverse residents. It bridges the gaps between challenged communities and the fiscal opportunities of local development. In doing this, Core Collaboratives looks to support quality development in cities that embraces and represents the diversity of the city
