Our triple bottom line network engages more than 500 community and resource partners, creating environmental, economic and social justice benefits for communities that need it most.
Many of America’s most important natural areas are frequently home to our most economically and socially distressed communities. Resourceful Communities creates opportunities that preserve the rural landscape, lift people out of poverty and celebrate our partner communities’ unique cultures. Working with a network of 500 grassroots and community organizations, we take a balanced ‘triple bottom-line’ approach that generates economic, environmental and social justice benefits. Our effective combination of direct support, skills building and connections to resources nurtures real change where it’s needed the most. By bringing together communities and conservation, people and places, we have created or retained over 2,200 jobs, and advanced a $12 to $1 return on investments in community solutions.
