About

Our mission is to build community wealth in Rhode Island, particularly in neighborhoods that have experienced historical disinvestment.

We do this by:

  • Building the local community investment ecosystem
  • Advocating for local policies and practices that support a vibrant and just local economy
  • Increasing community awareness and capacity

We define community wealth building as creating and using local assets to make a community more vibrant, developing assets in such a way that the wealth stays local, and helping families and communities control their own economic destiny (with gratitude to Marjorie Kelly of the Democracy Collaborative for this definition).
