The Equity Center is a community recovery and social enterprise endeavor in the heart of Montgomery County serving a particularly vulnerable community that has been disproportionately impacted by the Covid19 pandemic.
The Covid 19 pandemic has been disproportionately devastating to the communities that were already vulnerable due to systemic inequities, social/ethnic marginalization, and immigration insecurity. The Equity Center exists to offer effective solutions to post-pandemic recovery needs through innovative ideas, nimble infrastructures, and collaborative approaches.
We offer the following services:
Providing culturally appropriate fresh produce, staple foods, and resources (hygiene items, toiletries, diapers, infant and children’s needs)
Providing holistic care physically, emotionally, and spiritually
Providing economic resources and training
Connecting constituents with services available to them
Providing space for community connection
All of this will be accomplished with our core values informing and leading the effort: Dignity, Hospitality, and Community. These values inspire guide the operation of The Equity Center. The aim is to not only meet the practical needs of constituents but also further the higher needs for individual agency and self-worth and personal connection and belonging.
