Inclusive Communities & Rural Small Businesses Support

Organization Profile

For over 40 years, we've been a leading force engaging people to build a better rural future. We believe that where you live shouldn't determine your access to opportunity, education, and health. That's why we take rural voices to where they can be heard and make an impact, and we don't back down until we see that policies reflect the needs of all rural citizens.

We live for this work, and Platte and Colfax counties are our proof. Perhaps your favorite local restaurant got its start by using our loan services. Area farmers use their expertise to get beginners started using our mentoring programs. Maybe you've participated in a local business tour, or admired the community garden. We believe that rural communities are vibrant places worth celebrating.

Our Mission: Establish strong rural communities, social and economic justice, environmental stewardship, and genuine opportunity for all while engaging people in decisions that affect the quality of their lives and the future of their communities.
