we need to work on our elevator pitch to attract donors for our new building.
This project is very important to us because we all know the reality of housing in our country and we have created affordable housing in our community that impacted many people in our community and we would like to be able to create more affordable housing.
The mission of the Raise-Op is to operate safe and affordable housing that is democratically controlled by its Members on a non-profit basis.
The five principles that support this mission are:
Respect for other people and cooperative property;
Accountability to the cooperative and to each other;
Integration across different social groups;
Solidarity with individual members who face various social and economic challenges, and Solidarity with the movement for safe and affordable housing; and,
Equity among Members in the sharing of social and economic resources.
