Building on our personal experience in post-disaster relief (i.e. Haiti, earthquakes, 9/11 world trade center), community mobilization, and civic empowerment, HHCC will provide client-focus stabilization, transit ion to peace and democracy, and we will assist communities to mitigate the potential for ethnic, tribal, religious, gang, and other conflict.
In our work, HHCC will employ flexible management strategies adaptable to disparate environments, security challenges, and client needs.
When relief efforts end, communities must be equipped to continue their recovery. Through economic development programs, HHCC works to help generate business, train workers, and create jobs that will sustain families and fuel growth through social loans, business loans, vocational opportunities and employment.
HHCC has been created out of vast real-life experience in community building, economic development, new income development and capital/fund raising.
