Closing the gap between the haves and the have-nots.

We live in a culture that promotes surviving the day; living below an arbitrary income and over-dependence on government intervention. Our focus is on the income gap itself and empowering ordinary people to live, thrive, and reinvest. We envision communities that are less dependent on localities and policy-makers and instead contributors to community-based capital that can be used for social, cultural, political and economic growth.

PORT SULPHUR, LA - MAY 26:  Shelly Phillips holds niece Kimmore Barthelemy in the FEMA Diamond travel trailer park May 26, 2008 in Port Sulphur, Louisiana. Phillips lost her home and job in Hurricane Katrina and is raising four children. FEMA federal trailer parks that house many Hurricane Katrina victims are set to close May 31, prompting fears that people will be forced into residences they can't afford or will be left homeless. Most residents will receive a federal subsidy to move to apartments, but affordable rental housing is scarce in some areas like New Orleans and Baton Rouge.  (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)
