To empower and engage our community to eliminate poverty, and create prosperity and equity in the lives of the people we serve.
We envision a community where individuals and families can prosper, with access to quality education, affordable housing, healthcare, gainful employment, and meaningful involvement in civic life.
We believe community coordinated partnerships empower people with low incomes to find the support, resources, and relationships they need to overcome economic, racial, and/or cultural barriers that prevent them from establishing and maintaining self-sufficient and connected lives.
We value the strengths and assets of all people and organizations with whom we partner.
We believe in listening honestly, processing information accurately, and following through on our commitments.
- Cultural Competence
We value meaningful relationships between people of diverse cultural, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
We believe it is possible for Duluth residents and organizations to improve the quality of life for everyone.
