Our Roots: Hope is Where Home is
Smart Development strives to continuously spread our message of opportunity, hope, and equity. When communities struggle, 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 on being from the communities we serve, emphasizing refugee and immigrant communities 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.
