Economic Prosperity

The Community Foundation supports a variety of evidence-based programs designed to increase economic prosperity in the region, including safe and affordable housing, effective workforce development and financial literacy programs.

Underscoring the importance of these services is the continued cycle of inter-generational poverty in Richmond and other under-served communities across the region. As a result, these residents are at greater risk of homelessness, incarceration and emergency medical needs.

Our priority is to support systems and initiatives that empower individuals and families to secure stable housing, build skills and seek resources that help them achieve good health, successful educational outcomes and economic potential.

Our goals:

  • Residents have opportunities to access and maintain safe and affordable housing in thriving, sustainable communities.
  • Residents are able to build the knowledge, skills and resources they need to attain financial independence and pursue career opportunities.
