Mika Community Development Corporation exists to identify and equip leaders in low-income neighborhoods to build communities with VISION.
Communities of VISION demonstrate the following outcomes:
Vision: neighbors share and agree on a desired future for their community. Interdependent Relationships with God and Each Other: neighbors support one another in all facets of life: spiritually, emotionally, socially and economically. Servant Leadership: leaders are committed to serve first, listen, trust, collaborate, and empower other neighbors to serve effectively. Impact: neighbors identify, design, fund, manage and evaluate sustainable initiatives that transform their community. Organization: neighbors have established efficient and effective local systems and structures to reach their shared goals and vision. Networks: neighbors collaborate with public and private partners from inside and outside the community to maximize the impact of their initiatives.
