Three Anchors of Community Wellness

Health & Wellness

Equality health centers move wellness for our most vulnerable and disadvantaged citizens from being act of social responsibility, and into a space where healing citizens become an economically viable function for community, government, and private industry. Our model mitigates the planning of staffing and operations for health centers in medically underserved areas, while providing revenue for the partner institution.

Workforce Development & Education

The Equality Equation Education Platform facilitates economic, political, and social equality and stimulates economic development for distressed communities by delivering high-quality essential education and workforce development opportunities which benefit disadvantaged individuals, communities, education, government, non-profit organizations, private industry, and investors.

Sports & Recreation

The Athletic Live and Learn centers will grant youth in disadvantaged communities a space to play, learn, heal, and grow. The facility will enable students to travel safely from home to school, to their after-school program and back home. At the ALL Centers, they ball, they live, they learn.

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have played a significant role in the development of the black community in the United States. These institutions have been around for over a century, providing educational opportunities for black students who were previously denied access to mainstream colleges and universities. One aspect of HBCUs that is often overlooked is their athletic programs. The importance of HBCU athletics cannot be overstated, and having their own national sports championships is crucial for their economic, social, and institutional growth.
