Who Are We Now and Where Are We Going?

The Holigent Team is growing!  We are attracting inspired people with diverse backgrounds who are dedicated to advancing the Holigent mission.

We have begun hosting strategic planning and discussion meetings every Saturday morning and one of our volunteers, with experience in consulting and business and nonprofit development, generously moderated a full-day strategic planning session for us. We shared ideas, constructive criticisms, strategies and a delicious lunch. The day resulted in very productive outcomes that will focus our decisions and activities as we move forward.

Importantly we further defined and synthesized Holigent.Org's mission statement:

Holigent.Org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Los Angeles that provides an innovative economic and community model to facilitate the transition to economic security, quality of life, and environmental sustainability – a community at a time.

We also began planning a small-scale project to get things off the ground sooner and that would provide our team and supporters with hands-on opportunities for involvement and learning.  "The Holigent Seed Project" - more on that soon!
