Who We Are

Our Roots

Smart Development strives to continuously spread our message of opportunity, hope, and equity. When our community struggles, we focus on not only short-term but long-term recovery for more diverse, equitable communities we call home. While we help all in need, we pride ourselves as a staff and board on being from the communities we serve, emphasizing on serving new and existing refugee, immigrant, newcomer, and racial and ethnic minority communities to be able to grow roots and become  self-sufficient with access to the same opportunities for all. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly transform lives, which is why we celebrate diverse cultures and people and act as a voice for those often under-represented and under-served. We believe our work recognizes the dignity of all those we serve and every part of who they are and seeks to create a community that allows them to thrive. We advocate daily for equitable representation and access to services ensuring their needs, life-experiences, and voice are at the center of our decision making and known to our community partners.
