Cultural Business Hub in Oak Cliff, Texas 

Phase one of launching the first Cultural Business Hub is happening right now!  We are currently on the process of acquiring properties in Oak Cliff that will house the hub.   We couldn’t be more excited and thankful!  These old Oak Cliff properties have been sitting vacant for many years and are located near the highway and train stations in a neighborhood that stands in the shadows of poverty and gentrification.  Many hard working families are in this neighborhood with the want and need for a fresh selection in this food desert.  We need your donations to support the start-up capital to acquire these properties.  Invest in building better business in the hood by donating here, read below about the businesses in the phase one formula and leave a comment.  We love to hear your feedback and encourage you to get involved! ABOUT SUSU CBI

Here’s the formula:

Phase one of the hub includes cultural retail, CBI resource space, Health Food Café, Health and Wellness Services Co-op.
