Cultivators. We partner with you to identify and strengthen your community’s unique assets and capabilities, helping them grow with the right mix of public and private resources.

A Catalyst for Community Success

While national know-how is critical to solving the toughest challenges, creative and effective solutions require more. That is why we supplement our expertise with community-level data and insights, building on and enhancing strengths in every community.

Our expertise encompasses five broad areas, each with a dedicated team of housing and community development professionals.

Housing Strategy & Implementation: Let us show you how to develop and implement data-informed and community-driven housing solutions that align policy tools and financing to transform communities and ensure every home and community is stable and connected to opportunity. Contact Christopher Kizzie to begin building a path to opportunity.
Civic Engagement & Fair Housing: Local leaders need the right tools and engagement strategies to create a shared vision of social and economic vitality. We can help you advance fair housing principles to yield greater inclusion and equity for all residents. Contact Jarrod Elwell to find the right tools and strategies to build your vision.
two girls Public Housing Re-Visioning: With experience leading federal programs like Moving to Work and Choice Neighborhoods, our team can help guide efforts to revitalize public housing and connect residents to job services, better schools and broader housing options. Contact Erika Ruiz to chart your team’s path to public housing success.

Socio-Economic Development: Historically distressed communities have specific needs and assets. Our team’s comprehensive approach demonstrates how to implement workforce development, inclusive entrepreneurship and other programs to help residents and neighborhoods thrive. For a holistic and tailored approach to revitalization, contact Hara Wright-Smith.
Cross-Sector Support for Cities: We believe knowledge has no boundaries. That’s why we leverage a wide range of experts when partnering with economically distressed cities both to resolve short-term challenges and invest in their communities’ sustainable long-term growth.
