Wealthworks

WealthWorks is an organization that promotes economic development of communities throughout the United States. Their systematic approach and model identifies enterprising opportunities and brings together a community’s assets to meet market demand and build lasting livelihoods.  
The WealthWorks model is complex, and each partner has a unique, multi-faceted story to tell. The WealthWorks coordinators wanted to share the individual efforts of each organization, many of whom had been working for years to address difficult problems. 
The challenge was to condense that work into a cohesive collection of stories that honored the challenges, passion, and culture of the communities and people involved.

"The communities we were working with have often had their stories sensationalized and exploited. The best feedback we got from them was that we told their story right.” 
Amber Garvey, Director of Strategy/Operations
We launched the project through research in order to understand the work in each region and how we might capture it. Any assumptions on our end would have made us miss the real struggles, wins, and voices of those involved.
