7,000-Square-Foot Facility Designed for Social Services Proliferation
DALLAS, Texas (Dec. 29, 2016) – Transformance, an integrated financial capability nonprofit, is set to open its long-awaited Economic Empowerment Center (EEC) the first week of January. Over a year in the making, the redesigned and renovated lower floor of Transformance’s corporate headquarters will now provide multiple workspace options for other nonprofits and community organizations to conduct social services outreach.
“The EEC was created to be a place of common ground for the community, nonprofits and families who need a high-quality, affordable and convenient place for staging events,” said Dr. Daniel B. Prescott, Jr., interim President/CEO of Transformance.
The Economic Empowerment Center is specifically designed to offer three core components:
• Collaboration – Through an integrated services delivery model, Transformance is partnering with other nonprofits to provide social services and job services alongside their education, learning and development programs.
• Collective Impact – By working together in a team-based environment, multiple servant leader-based organizations can offer a combined effort to better serve individuals and communities.
• Scale – The EEC is scalable and replicable in other communities across Texas and the nation. Thanks to technological advances and global thinking, services are no longer limited geographically. These strategic partnerships will create a network of services with a unified mission.
The EEC consists of approximately 7,000 square feet of space, of which 5,000 make up the main conference room. The additional 2,000 square feet is dedicated to co-working space. There are three large meeting rooms, all audio/video/Wi-Fi enabled. Workforce development, STEM programs, financial coaching, food pantry assistance, corporate volunteerism and financial education programs will all play a key role in the EEC.
“We are excited to have built this space and, in doing so, brought a vision into fruition,” added Prescott, Jr. “The movie ‘Field of Dreams’ said, ‘build it and they will come.’ We have built it. We are now looking for the community to come.”
