Civil Unrest and the Covid Pandemic is impacting our already distressed communities of color, presenting us with new challenges and a new economy.

We are aiding the discovery of multiple pathways to financial independence and social freedom.

Community members who have been able to move to a stage of wealth building say it is because of:

* Opportunities for a solid education

* Learning how to invest

* Being able to purchase property

* The ability to participate in entrepreneurship (which is one of the leading employment factors in the US economy today)

What People Are Saying About Success Mindset

Many who have been able to move to a stage of wealth building say it is because of opportunities for a solid education, learning how to invest, and being able to purchase property

THE SHIBA REPORT

The Term SHIBA, is the acronym used to represent our focus on the State of Housing in Black America (SHIBA)

The SHIBA Report is very comprehensive. It provides a detail view into the real numbers and facts that impact and impede Black families from realizing the dream of homeownership.

A living-wage income is a first and extremely important step to building wealth. But it cannot be the endgame when thinking about building inter-generational wealth. To advance economic equity, we must move beyond focusing on poverty reduction and living-wage job opportunities to focusing on wealth creation. *

 

Many of our country’s lowest-income workers turn to self-employment as a means of creating a job or supplementing a low-wage job. Entrepreneurship can be a pathway out of poverty, but many entrepreneurs are in need of  support.

 

Overall, African American households are less likely to own a business than white households, and if they do, the business is, on average, eight times less valuable than a white owned business. One cause of this disparity is lack of access to capital and not having the relevant knowledge or mentor-ship as primary barriers to starting a business. **

 

Competing with white-owned business where access to capital is readily available and often secured by property, leads to a dead end cycle when property ownership is out of reach.
