For New York

Wildcat’s Social Enterprise division provides services that directly benefit the community, in addition to creating jobs.  As we continue to grow, we are deeply committed to developing sustainable funding streams through our own innovative social enterprise efforts.

NEIGHBORHOOD STABILIZATION
In 2009, Wildcat piloted an innovative program called the Neighborhood Improvement Project in South Jamaica, Queens to address the dual challenges of blight and unemployment driven by foreclosures. Our transitional workers help residents maintain their neighborhood and home values by cleaning public areas, helping with minor repairs and removing eyesores that can lead to increased crime and declining neighborhood conditions – all while creating new jobs and putting people to work.

NIP went citywide in April 2010, creating 220 new transitional job opportunities for our customers. As part of the program, Wildcat is also providing regular job training, coaching and mentoring with the end goal of securing permanent work.

CUSTODIAL MAINTENANCE
Wildcat customers can be hired for full-service cleaning services and have cleaned government and institutional spaces as well as commercial ones.

STREET CLEANING & BEAUTIFICATION
We have worked with several business corridors and business improvement districts to conduct street maintenance, plant flowers, remove graffiti and trash removal.

GROUNDSKEEPING
Wildcat has also helped maintain large public outdoor areas and parks through horticulture. For example, Wildcat customers have been hired to maintain the public areas of Governors Island since 2008.
