Social Capital Inc.

Mission & Vision: The mission of SCI Social Capital Inc. is to strengthen communities by connecting diverse individuals and organizations through civic engagement initiatives. We envision a nation where individuals are strongly connected to their neighbors and play an active role in shaping the destiny of their communities. This increase in ‘social capital’ will result in communities that are safer, healthier and more vital. SCI, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, is currently working on this mission and vision in nearly a dozen Massachusetts locations.

 

Technology for Engagement: Since SCI was founded in 2002, strategic use of technology to connect residents to opportunities to participate in community life has been an important part of our work. To that end, SCI partners with local communities like Mattapan to develop community web portals like MyMattapan.org, along with a social media and community outreach strategy encourage residents to connect and participate.
