Community-Minded Enterprises, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, encourages and demonstrates long-term community well being by offering skills, strategies and services through which communities achieve and sustain greater resiliency. We are committed to advancing a universal model for successful, sustainable communities.
By community we mean combinations of people, nature, and culture in a place – urban or rural – of a size which allows people to be involved with each other in personal and meaningful ways. With increased connection between people and their ecosystems, local communities over time become more self-sufficient, resilient and self-sustaining.
A sustainable community provides for its members adequate and affordable shelter and healthcare; easily accessible and healthy food sources; a living wage and grassroots economic development; child care support and education available for all ages; community media; efforts to ensure a clean environment and alternative energy. It appreciates diverse cultures and demographics, and uses differences to foster creative solutions to our common problems. A sustainable community would be able to support itself during economic, health and environmental crises.
