Mission: Cri brings together caring partners to systematically initiate, grow and sustain and safe and loving community with measurable results.
Programs: Systematically enlisting and training volunteers, cri's relational model grows individuals in their dedication to the renewal of community. By making caring people visible and connecting them through the overarching we care strategy, enlisting and training haven house block leaders to intentionally make friends on the streets where they live, and moving whole families into vulnerable friendship house neighborhoods to connect and empower individuals to grow, cri is renewing community. Over 53,000 individuals have signed we care cards and are receiving quarterly newsletters. Over 1,500 volunteers have been enlisted and trained to be haven house block leaders. Community renewal staff live in ten friendship houses serving five vulnerable inner city neighborhoods where crime has gone down an average of 40%.
