Turning Interest into Action

Here at Cura Community Outreach Inc., we see the value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 2020, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Non-Profit Organization upon: Support, Empowerment and Progress.

Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. CCO emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words.

OUR VISION: Our vision at Cura Community Outreach, Inc., as a 501(c)(3) organization, is to see underserved and underrepresented communities transformed into thriving hubs of economic opportunity and prosperity.

Through innovative programs and collaborative partnerships, we aspire to break barriers, empower minds, and build a legacy of sustainable economic growth and self-sufficiency within these communities.

OUR MISSION: To promote, entrepreneurial education, growth, and economic sustainability throughout underserved and underrepresented communities.  We strive to empower individuals by providing access to essential resources, training, and support through our community business resource center. By fostering a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem, we aim to uplift communities and create lasting positive change.

OUR PURPOSE: To provide communities in underserved and underrepresented areas, access to entrepreneurial education and training through our business resource center that will aid in the development and/or improvement of entrepreneurial skills.  To encourage, engage, and support youth entrepreneurship through our "The Change is YOU" initiative.
