BY DESIGN

Everything we do is designed with transformation in mind.

People: We want personal transformation for both people living in and out of underserved communities. We believe everyone is designed to transform (both becoming something more and helping others become something more)

Places (spaces): We believe that environment encourages behavior, and we aim to create accessible, home-like environments where transformation, rather than formation, can occur organically

Programming: We develop community-specific programming that focuses on a transformation of mind, body, and spirit. Programs are holistically structured and responsive to the expressed needs of the community and individual members

Staff: We hire people committed to forming deep, trusting relationships and who are willing to be consistently present

Strategy: We tailor opportunities to support personal transformation and ensure people have access to the variety of resources they need

Structure: We create a family-like culture built for teachable moments and based on the power of individual choice
