Building Our Community Together

Join us in our vision of a Southeast Raleigh where our history and culture are acknowledged and celebrated, structural barriers are removed, and all residents have access to pathways to achieve full success and prosperity.

We work with our neighbors to build the promise of a brighter future.

Systemic barriers, a history of racially biased policies, and a lack of equitable investment in Southeast Raleigh neighborhoods have prolonged intergenerational poverty for our residents.

As a local expression of the Purpose Built Communities model, we partner to create equitable opportunities that lead to improved outcomes for individuals, families, and children in our community.

How we Collaborate With Members of The Community

The foundation of our work is grounded in leadership development where all individuals, youth, and families are positive agents of change and are civically ready with the skills necessary to drive long-term individual and community success.
