our vision

Make Communities is a mission driven consulting firm with a vision for accessible, equitable and empowered communities.

We believe that quality of life and quality of place are crucial components of revitalization. People focused and place based opportunities must be open to all people in order for a community to truly thrive.

We believe the steps to creating a thriving neighborhood, organization, city or network are not one-size fits all.  No one knows what a community needs to succeed better than the people who live it everyday.

We believe in the power of communities to come together to solve their most pressing and difficult challenges.  Whether working within existing systems, working around them or changing them to meet their needs, the creativity and resilience of communities should never be underestimated or understated.
