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 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.

Our Mission

Specifically, our mission entails:

  • Providing ladders for climbing from poverty into prosperity;
  • Improving health outcomes;
  • Integrating with and creating synergies for existing faith-based organizations and social family service programs;
  • Creating and sustaining public-private partnerships;
  • Expanding the supply of affordable housing; and,
  • Encouraging and assisting commercial development.

Our Key Values
