BY DESIGN

Everything we do is designed with transformation in mind.

Space: Our community centers look and feel like a home – environment encourages behavior

Strategy: Comprehensive programming intentionally supports the whole person – people in poverty face multiple obstacles at the same time, so transformation requires us to address all of those obstacles at the same time, too

Staff: We hire amazing staff who are specifically gifted to do this this kind of work, committed to forming deep, trusting relationships and willing to be consistently present

Structure: We operate like a family, supporting individual choice & embracing teachable moments

Shared-Opportunity: We want to see personal transformation for people living in and out of underserved communities – we all can become more of who we are

6 KEY AREAS

Through a holistic and collaborative approach, we are focused on six key areas of a healthy community:

Literacy: offering high-quality education opportunities to children and adults

Discipleship: providing outlets for spiritual growth

Employment: working with the community to create and source local employment

Health & Wellness: providing access to social, emotional, physical, and mental health services

Responsibility: empowering local leaders and encouraging regular participation
