Summary of the communities with whom we’ve been speaking

Helvetia Chäserei — Helvetia, West Virginia:

  • An ‘e-Cow-nomy’ in Helvetia WV in which an earn & learn community is growing around the revitalization of local cheeses made from historical cultural recipes.
  • Tanya Golden’s vision pairs indigenous and vulnerable women with a female mentor to learn valuable skills and crafts, in time graduating to become part of the matronage to extend the benefit to others, thus allowing her to transition her business into a 501(c)(3), using the community activation app by 214 Alpha.
  • A nonprofit 501(c)(3) Creative Collective, building a holistic mental wellness program for people who struggle with mental illness. We are a committed team of creatives, doctors, therapists and philanthropists who are working to build a step-by-step mental wellness program to sensitive creative people to discover a new level of physical, emotional, mental and economic stability.
