Local initiatives, local results


WCS coordinates efforts and resources that enhance community and economic opportunities that address neighborhood stakeholder-identified root causes hindering children from arriving to school every day, engaged, and ready to learn.

Our approach to community and economic development encourages strategically using local resources that enhance economic opportunities, while improving social conditions in a sustainable way. This stabilizing strategy has a long-term effect on addressing the root causes impacting students’ ABC’s (attendance, behavior and course performance).


By actively eliciting community involvement when working with government, as well as the private sector, we amplify neighborhood voices and strengthen local businesses.
