Purpose

Generating community wealth and well-being for a just, equitable, and flourishing future.

#Together We Can

Why Now?

Our communities are experiencing rapidly growing pressures such as housing affordability, food insecurity, mental health challenges, and wealth inequities.

We can see how the current trajectory extends if we don’t collectively move from treating socio-economic symptoms, to transforming root causes.

Why OCS?

The OCS Community Enterprise infuses the best of the current “symptom-specific” approaches, within holistic and whole-system approaches to create a scalable self-governing system.

Together, our community can begin solving our toughest challenges.
