As part of the Momentus Capital family of organizations, we are uniquely positioned to provide a continuum of financial, social, and knowledge capital to help uplift all people’s right to achieve the dreams they have for themselves, their communities, and generations to come.
With decades of experience across lending, capacity building, public policy, and impact investments, our teams are focused on supporting locally led solutions that strengthen the kinds of shared pillars – housing, education, healthy food, and more – that help build healthy communities and generational wealth.
THE SOCIAL DETERMINANTS OF HEALTH
Community and economic development are becoming increasingly cross-sectoral, creating opportunities for Community Development Corporations (CDCs), Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), and other organizations to bring a holistic lens to the issues facing communities.
The Social Determinants of Health Framework (SDOH) is our path for assessing our progress toward this holistic vision.
Here are examples of organizations we serve in each of the six SDOH domains.
THE PLACES WE SERVE
In line with our goal to help support economic mobility and wealth creation through more equitable access to capital and opportunities, we bring our listen-first approach to multiple cities across the country.
