The Network brings together dozens of member organizations to create and improve opportunities for people in the 24:1 community to build equity. We invest time and resources into these organizations, and also serve as a thought leader and community connector in the area. Through sparking collaborations between organizations to engaging with local leaders to hosting free trainings for service providers, the Network makes it easier for organizations to make a positive impact in the 24:1.

The Network is guided by our Mission & Vision.


We build equity by serving those who create opportunities for people in the 24:1 community to learn, live, and leave a legacy.


The Network envisions building equity for individuals in the 24:1.

Our values drive us forward.

Orientation to Mission & Build Equity

Our north star throughout all of our work is to create equity in living, learning, and legacy. We dedicate our time, expertise, and resources to breaking down inequity created by historical and ongoing disinvestment and discrimination. By building out, listening to, and engaging with our strong, collaborative network of partners that can solve the tough challenges facing our community, we strive to make choices in the best interest of our mission as well as those who  live, work, and play in the 24:1.

Owning Our Future

We believe in leveraging data, construction expertise, our service network, and responsible financial management to impact our community through service and housing solutions. We  empower our staff with growth and development opportunities and foster a culture of internal ownership, ensuring everyone understands the vital role we play in our community.

Excellence Together

We foster innovation and excellence through the exchange of ideas and effective discourse. We challenge ourselves and others through safe and open communication by making space for each team member to share their ideas and learn about their colleagues and their work.

We are intellectually humble and curious. We are willing to learn from each other, share our own point of view, and ask difficult questions. We always act with integrity and in a community-first orientation.

Informed and Inclusive

We celebrate the diversity of lived experiences within our staff and those we serve. We strive for  cultural competency by sharing our work, fostering a well-informed community and ensuring internal knowledge of the unique needs of neighbors. Coupled with our expertise in housing solutions and funding partnerships, this knowledge strengthens our ability to advocate for and deliver positive change.
