Program Values

People matter, place matters.
People and place make containers for belonging. We believe this sense of belonging is the most powerful force for personal growth, healing, and transformation. We call this sense of belonging, home.

Empower others.
Community, connection, and culture cannot be manufactured. They are created by community members through persistent contributions over time. We support, coach, and resource the people called to create community.

Be radical, be practical.
Social innovation is a balancing act between our plans for a future world and the realities of our current world. We work to understand the social, cultural, and technical intricacies of our current system to bridge the gap between innovation and tradition.

Create community for good.
We are faced with social injustice, climate change, housing inaffordability, social isolation, and other grand challenges. We believe that change comes from small groups of passionate people. We aim to help create those groups.

Including painting, dancing, spoken word, print making, community making, social activism, photography, videography, or any other creative art.
