Role of Collective Focus
Our group focuses on project management. We create socially conscious creative opportunities that center community building and collective problem solving. Our three main projects are: the Resource Hub, our Creative Media Syndicate, and our Coaching & Consulting Program.
Brooklyn Resource Hub
The Resource Hub is a community space that redistributes free food and clothing, facilitates wellness programming, and provides workshops for children and adults. We partner with artists and organizations that align with our values to create a unique retail experience through our marketplace and product placement opportunities. We fundraise extensively for our community initiatives, through special events, collaborations and sponsorship packages. This is our pilot for a sustainable business model we hope to replicate in all neighborhoods experiencing food insecurity and disenfranchisement.
Free Goods and Services
The Resource Hub provides the following free donated resources to the community:
- Food & Books
- Clothing, Shoes, & Housewares
- Printing, Wifi & Computer Use
Creative Media Syndicate
We support visionary artists and activists that defy the boundaries of convention. Our team helps creatives achieve their goals of transforming society in a unique way. This roster includes a diverse range of talents and ideas. There is an audio recording studio at the Resource Hub that produces independent content.
We collaborate with others, utilizing our resources and skills to create trailblazing content through our media syndicate. We maximize assets at the Resource Hub to strengthen a network of change-makers within our collective and beyond.
Life Coaching and Group Consultations
With the support of our Resource Hub and network, we create new possibilities for the future by directing essential resources into communities in the forms of nutrition, goods, holistic services, political education, and direct wealth redistribution. Our Coaching & Consulting Program guides individuals and groups that wish to scale up their own involvement in community building and wellness. We provide guidance to those that wish to give back their time and money in a way that responds ethically and appropriately to our shared, modern experience. We accept individual and corporate clients in need of holistic mentorship, wealth redistribution, or social media and community outreach.
Collective Focus was founded in 2020 by Sarah Rooney and Briana Calderón Navarro as a way to help others through problem-solving practices and mutual aid.
