Ford Resource and Engagement Centers

Ford Resource and Engagement Centers are a Ford Fund innovation that bring nonprofits, residents and leaders together to support their neighborhoods. Since 2013, we have developed a global network of these facilities – each one unique in how it reflects the needs and culture of the community it serves. Working with the community, we design services for the community – meeting urgent needs and opening pathways to education and high-quality jobs.
