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.
Mixed-Income Housing & Real Estate
We work to ensure access to safe, high-quality, and affordable housing for renters and homeowners.
Cradle to Career Education
We advocate for children to obtain an education that ensures social connectivity, self-efficacy, and post-secondary credentials with labor-market value.
We connect members of the community to employment, entrepreneurship, wealth creation, and economic advancement opportunities.
Health & Community Wellbeing
We are committed to addressing health disparities and improving health outcomes for residents.
