Our Core Values


We cultivate a sense of pride and ownership that unifies and strengthens our community for generations. We strive to ensure that all members of our community have the skills, opportunities, and desire to participate in our shared future. We foster one-on-one relationships, partnerships, and offer regular chances for community members to participate and give back. 

health & Resilience

We promote dignity, health, and sustainability for all community members. We equip individuals to strengthen their physical, emotional, mental, social, and financial health, even in challenging circumstances. Our offerings include classes, workshops, regular access to fresh food, and interconnected resources. 


We stimulate an equitable, vibrant local economy by supporting local businesses, and job creation. With a business approach, we create new economic systems that help our community members to achieve and sustain financial independence. This independence allows community members to put down roots and shape our shared future.

Training & 

We break down social barriers by teaching community members about the structural forces that create cycles of chronic material poverty. We equip others, including other organizations, to rethink how charity works. Then, we equip others to learn the skills and strategies for creating long-term community health.


we build systems that foster stability for everyone, making our community and economy thrive.
