The Communitea Project (TCP) is a first-of-its-kind, grassroots community based social service initiative that will offer adaptive, subsidized, and self-sufficient educational, housing, and health services that meet the specific needs of the communities it serves and calls home. Our project is devoted to effecting social change rooted in proactive environmentalism, intercultural competency, self-sustainability, responsibility and accountability for one another, and the agency of the community and the individuals that comprise it. We believe the communities we help create will generate jobs, stimulate social cohesion and healthier public discourse, as well as change the way that governments, businesses, and private individuals approach healthcare, housing, and education by providing locally generated, innovative, sustainable, repeatable, and adaptive solutions to everyday issues – seeing them as interwoven and having a profound effect on one another.
Communitea Project is connected and supported by community teahouses partnered with local teagrowers with a shared commitment to community agency and sustainable practices. This Project is funded by a combination of charitable contributions, grants, endowments, and sponsorship from members of the Communitea network of homegrown businesses and charter sponsor-members. These sponsor-members have all signed a charter committing to grassroots, ethical, community and people first business practices that provide operational transparency so that you know how the dollars you spend in their businesses goes towards providing community welfare services. Communitea exists for and by the love and effort put into by the people it serves. Each Communitea Center shares the aforementioned mission but also adapts and responds to the individual needs of the community it resides in.
