  • ongoing bookkeeping


Let's explore the ways that we can center the most economically marginalized members of our community with our hiring practices and build equity into the foundation of our organizations.


We can help you with:

  • hiring employees

  • creating management systems

  • processing payroll


Starting a business is hard but it's a lot less scary when you are surrounded by supportive community and have the right resources. Let's democratize access to the human, social, and financial capital needed to start and grow a thriving business.


We can help with:

  • working out the details

  • creating a business plan
  • finding the right resources
