Vision, Mission and Core Values

Our Vision

We dream of communities:

  • with rising levels of prosperity;
  • where employment and decent housing are accessible by all;
  • where health outcomes are excellent;
  • where vibrant community life emerges from diversity; and,
  • where all show compassion to those who are in need.

Our Mission

We provide pathways for moving from poverty to prosperity by:

  • Expanding the supply of decent housing;
  • Supporting economic development;
  • Increasing access to healthcare and encouraging healthy behavior;
  • Creating and sustaining public-private partnerships;
  • Aligning the strategies and resources of the educational, faith-based, governmental, capital, social service, business and healthcare sectors.

Our Values

Everyone that works with us and for us is personally involved in the lives of our community. This keeps us relationally connected to our neighbors and community. We intentionally invest in relationships as we invest in other aspects of community development.

We are here for the long-term, even when things get hard. We do not launch programs and then leave but we are here till our vision has been accomplished.

We pursue the disconnected and bring them into relationship through what is often hard relational work that is rooted in listening, humility, and learning.

Everything we do is built on an ethic of inclusion, diversity, and justice. Reconciliation is hard work and we are committed to building diverse relational bridges that lead to true justice.
