We define under-served communities as any demographic group (geographic, ethnic, age, etc.) whose indicators lag behind the national average by, at least, 30%.

We focus on basic need inequality gaps in 4 impact sectors: Economic Development, Education, Health, and Safety; and are guided by 4 principles: 

1] We Already Have Everything That We Need: The key is to create platforms and networks that foster continued collaboration and support.

2] Start Where The Greatest Needs Exist: Our purpose is to actively seek out the greatest of these unmet needs, and solve them.

3] Innovation Is The Great Equalizer: We focus on using the assets at our disposal combined with a culture of out-of-box thinking and rapid experimentation.

4] Small Solutions Create Big Change: In short bursts, our talented tribe members address small, fixable issues which slow a community from realizing its’ goals
