HEDC VISTA - Program Development Coordinator
 
 
 
The Hispanic Economic Development Corporation’s (HEDC’s) mission is to create and implement economic development initiatives which improve the lives of Latinos - and other underserved communities - within the Greater Kansas City area. This is accomplished through programming that focuses on strengthening existing Latino-owned, small businesses; and cultivating the entrepreneurial spirit of Hispanic start-ups. HEDC is the only area-Community Development Corporation (CDC) offering economic development initiatives purposefully designed to address the needs of the Kansas City area's most under-served small-business community. HEDC provides a bilingual and multi-culturally-sensitive approach in assisting current and aspiring entrepreneurs to achieve financial stability. Since tracking data (2006), more than 2,450 individuals have participated in more than 23,400 hours of combined training related to the planning, start-up and growth of small businesses. During this time, HEDC has helped facilitate the start-up and growth of more than 550 local, small businesses. HEDC, through its mission and programs and services, aligns with AmeriCorp's VISTA's priority for programs that create economic opportunities to low-income individuals.
