The ILI was born to promote more significant innovation and sustainable progress toward improving the lives of low-wealth individuals, families, and communities.
Communities are better through services provided by skilled servant leaders and other professionals engaged in lifelong learning. These leaders are well-versed in collaborative shared visioning, problem-solving, and implementation strategies. They build upon successes across generations, creating a culture of continuous improvement in the quality of life for diverse community stakeholders.
The mission of the Institute for Local Innovations (ILI) is to assist diverse community development organizations and professionals at every stage of their careers in their work to build economically and socially healthier urban, suburban, and rural communities.
