Leading the Leveraging and Sharing of Assets
Unleashing Economic and Social Power
Community Teamwork’s mission is to unleash the economic and social power of the people we serve and the communities we support by providing basic stability to households in need and creating opportunities for personal development and social and economic growth.
Central to this work is our success in building a dynamic matrix of close partnerships with organizations and businesses that strengthen the fabric of Community Teamwork and the community as a whole. For example, over 300 members of our Senior Corps Volunteer program and YouthBuild and Spindle City Youth programs deliver nearly $1 million in community services annually to help children, seniors, people with disabilities, local park services and community groups. We benefit individuals and society.
We realize we are a much more powerful agent of positive community change when we are investing in the community and are connected to the resources and assets of our local community. This sharing of resource is powerful, resulting in greater outcomes than any one element alone.
Here are some more examples of this powerful synergy:
- Community Teamwork invests over $43 million in community goods and services, enhancing the livelihoods of many local small and mid size businesses.
- Community Teamwork invests directly and indirectly nearly $70 million in people and families who dream of becoming stable and moving up the economic ladder. Services like affordable child care allow families to work; affordable housing allows people to invest in their immediate and long range goals and dreams.
- Community Teamwork partners with business, government, faith, non profit, education, healthcare groups, immigrant and refugee communities and individual citizens to deliver services and set our strategic goals.
- Community Teamwork builds our base of affordable housing, working closely with cities, towns and municipalities across the Merrimack Valley.
All of these deeply interwoven connections and partnerships make Community Teamwork and the community more resilient and responsive in helping people and whole community reach their full potential.
