Community Leadership

Community Matters believes that the lived experiences of our neighbors make them the experts, and we value their ideas, skills, and strengths.

The Community Leadership pillar invests directly in residents as organizers and leaders of community initiatives. Within these initiatives and across our entire organization, we are committed to evaluating existing power structures, engaging with our community, and compensating all people for their expertise and time.

We seek to build a thriving and more just community where residents lead community initiatives, own businesses, and hold power over community institutions.
