Linc is committed to promoting the ideals of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). As an affordable housing and community developer, we are particularly poised to address these issues in our choices of where and how we build, which programs we deliver, and who we work with. We are working to alleviate long-standing barriers for populations traditionally at a disadvantage in accessing opportunities for prosperity and well-being.
We envision communities in which residents live full, healthy, prosperous lives, unbound by the current predictors and restrictions of race, gender, mobility, and class. We focus on economic progress, financial empowerment, and civic engagement, so that the residents who have found a home at Linc can prosper holistically. In supporting those most affected by disparities, we can build a more equitable and effective system for everyone. We aspire to be an organization that instills pride by association, to lead by example, and to stand behind our decisions and actions.
We commit to examining and understanding the root causes of economic injustice and the challenges we face and to meet them with the force and deliberation they deserve for long-term transformation. From our beginning, we have sought to improve the lives of people who were locked out of the systems of stability and prosperity, and that continues to be the core of who we are. But we know that systemic change emerges only when we as individuals have the humility and courage to challenge what is in our hearts and minds. Thus, we commit to learning, listening, and opening ourselves to new possibilities.
