CRI’s mission is to assist people in transforming the places where they live into vibrant communities full of life. These communities must nurture family life, encourage relationship building between neighbors, promote civic involvement, nurture spiritual development and create economic well being through home ownership and micro-business development.
CRI’s mission is focused on empowering people to become producers and problem solvers committed to investing their own resources in community development efforts. Residents will be empowered and equipped to define and build the kind of community they desire live in, enabling them to experience a truly fulfilling community life.
CRI accomplishes its mission by partnering with city planners, developers, non-profit organizations and governmental agencies in order to build communities. These authentic communities must integrate traditional design principles with social service infrastructure in order to create living environments that promote traditional town values such as:
- Civic mindedness
- Safety and security
- Spiritual development
- Economic well being
