Core Mission is to facilitate and nurture progressive critical thinking leadership in the African American community. As a team we understand urban core corridors, teach and develop civic and social engagement coalitions and initiatives, real estate investment, and stabilization in urban core communities. We have developed business tools to inspire, educate, create entrepreneurship, community cooperatives, community stabilization plans for re-occupying abandoned homes, community investment clubs, and teach marketing and customer service skills. A solid plan for redeveloping key urban communities with affordable multi-income homes, apartments, public and private charter schools (pre-K through the six grades), neighborhood social-historical events and environmentally safe parks by controlling and increasing individual and community wealth, and decreasing materialistic consumption.
"Every great movement started as we have started. Do not feel discouraged because in our few months of life we have not rivaled some long established Co-Operative venture. Each successful Co-Operative enterprise has taken much time and energy and sacrifice to establish. Nothing worth accomplishing is ever achieved without WORK. —Baker (1931d, 2)"
