Inclusive Economy Report
A new report by Cape Fear Collective, with support from the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, found the region’s economy suffers from massive wage inequality, a housing shortage that makes home ownership nearly impossible for low wage earners, and discrimination, particularly around job seekers with a criminal record.
CFC BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER, IN A STRUCTURED WAY, TO ACHIEVE SOCIAL CHANGE
We collaborate with our community partners and leverage innovative data science and analytics to generate clear, actionable, hyper-local insights aimed at exposing and programming against inequities.
We rally investors around these causes by using this same data to visualize specific opportunities for systemic change, and direct these financial resources where they can generate the greatest Social Return on Investment.
We commit nurturing and scaling multi-organizational projects, in collaboration with leaders across our community, to drive each project’s success in combatting poverty, racism, poor health and education outcomes and social-economic disparities affecting Southeastern North Carolina.
Healthy NC 2030
Through a partnership with UNCW Center for Social Impact, CFC is working to establish a true snapshot of health, opportunity, and disparity in Cape Fear Region.
Metrics that Matter
This project involves the development and maintenance of a cloud-based community data platform that will incorporate local health, housing, transportation, education, public safety, environmental, and other community information gleaned from regional anchor institutions.
Our hyper-local data-driven approach illuminates effective programs, partners, and solutions, setting a clear path to optimal social impact.
Racial Equity Dashboard
The Racial Equity Dashboard provides Cape Fear a snapshot of the issues facing it and a spotlight to find solutions to the inequity in the region.
Let’s Talk Jobs
The economic impact of COVID-19 will be felt for years to come but, according to the regional Cape Fear Talent survey, employers are still hiring. Over 55% of employers surveyed since mid-March indicated their businesses would grow over the next three years adding between 9,600 and 17,500 new jobs to our region.
The Collective Voice
HOUSING SEASON 1: EPISODE 14
On this episode, we’re talking about housing. Shelter ranks right at the top of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. But in Wilmington – like in many places in the nation – finding affordable housing is difficult, if not impossible.
We collaborate with community organizations to implement projects that put social equity at the forefront, gathering information and providing precise insights so our partners can better understand their complex social system, better direct resources where they’ll be most effective, and most effectively scale their initiatives to have the greatest impact on their mission.
