Almost a year into the COVID-19 pandemic that has changed our everyday lives, many businesses – particularly small, family-owned ones -- have been forced to close, some are hanging on by a thread, and others are doing what they can to survive this new reality.

Summer 2020

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, states and municipalities ordered “non-essential” workplaces shuttered. One survey showed that just weeks into the crisis, over half of small businesses expected revenue losses of 10 to 30 percent. One in five businesses expected their losses to be even greater. But as Kansas, Wisconsin, Oregon and New York included commercial rents in their state-mandated eviction suspensions, Florida paid little more than lip service in terms of small business support.


We implement place-making techniques to foster identity, support wealth-building strategies for marginalized communities of color and advocate for policies and procedures that support equitable, comprehensive and sustainable community development. We envision culturally preserved Miami’s neighborhoods thriving with community inclusivity, equitable development and sustainable policies and practices that promote wealth building and upward mobility for its people.
