What if everyone who was seeking work could get a good job, could advance in their career and make more money, and could live in a convenient, vibrant neighborhood? And what if everyone, when life dealt us unexpected economic shocks, could weather these storms more easily and recover more quickly?
If both of these things were true, we'd have economic mobility and resilience, a way to get ahead when times are good, and a way to bounce back when times get tough.
We're On a Mission
Empowering residents to succeed in today's economy
ECONOMIC EQUALITY, JUSTICE, & UNITY
For 24 years, Olive Hill CEDC, Inc. has served over 6,600 low to moderate income individuals and their families with program services that strengthen our local economy supporting our community enhancing lives. OHCEDC advances strategies, policies, and ideas to help low- and moderate-income people thrive in a changing economy.
We recognize that race, gender, and place intersect with and intensify the challenge of economic inequality, and we address these dynamics by advancing an inclusive vision of economic justice. OHCEDC focuses on expanding individuals’ opportunities to connect to quality work, start businesses, and build economic stability that provides the freedom to pursue opportunity for people who have been historically underserved, and those who suffer from discrimination and disinvestment.
Community benefits include new or retained jobs, affordable housing for lower-income people, thriving small businesses, services designed to meet community needs, assets built for lower-income residents, and places to start and grow new businesses.
