Promote Health & Wealth: The Prosperity Campaign

We link residents in need of economic stability with the financial services and healthcare programs that can help. Our network of Prosperity Centers offers services including free tax preparation, economic benefits counseling, homeownership counseling, financial coaching and more.

We also help operate a farmers market in Overtown that accepts food stamps and doubles the value of purchases made with food stamps.

Connect & Inspire: Imagine Miami

HSC does social networking with a twist – we call it “civic networking.” We connect South Florida residents across sector, background and area of interest, helping them find new opportunities for collaboration. Imagine Miami Changemaker Conferences, held twice a year, are powerful gatherings of nearly 200 people who learn skills for change, deepen their understanding of issues, discover examples of innovative “change-making” at the local level, and make new and inspiring connections.

HSC is involved in building the Penny Wise movement, a campaign against cuts to social services in Miami-Dade County.
