Title

Report "Operation H.E.R.E. and N.O.W."

Description

The Institute for Business and Community Development of the University of Richmond wrote this outline to describe the program that would combine many different organizations in Richmond, all dealing with the issues of the disadvantaged. The H.E.R.E and N.O.W. program stands for Housing, Education, Recreation and Employment, and Needs, Objectives, and Wants of the disadvantaged person. This program was founded upon the ideal that the private sector could "more effectively deal" with the issues of the disadvantaged than the government could. If an existing program didn't also provide the needs, objectives, and wants, then they acted as welfare programs instead of "turning tax consumers into contributing members of society." The first phase of the project was simply gathering and analyzing information about the needs of the community. Their primary focus was on securing education and employment for these communities. They included both a timeline and a budget. The total first year budget for the Institute would require $110,000.
