Collective Initiatives Inc. is a nonprofit organization focused on economic development in under-resourced communities. Our efforts are designed to foster equality and equity among under-resourced entities, groups, and communities. Our work in Business Management and Community Development ensures long-term economic and social well-being in communities that have historically lacked both. There are two divisions of our work, Business Management & Operations Support Services, and Community Development Initiatives. This work is designed to create inclusive opportunities for underrepresented groups, and enhance prosperity and quality of life for all members of under-resourced communities. Our activities center on the proverb, give people fish and they may eat for a day, but to teach people to fish they will eat for a lifetime.
