The mission of Community Inspired Actions is to support our youth, young adults and their families in maintaining healthy, productive and successful lives; by providing at -risk youth with the tools needed to build a better future. Our goal is to strengthen families and empower communities.
CIA desires to make available a center in which youth will have access to opportunities, skills, resources and the relationships they need to actualize their potential; envisioning a community that values and supports the well-being of children and families, where the neighborhood they live in does not determine their future; and youth have equitable access to educational opportunities, graduate from high school, and become successful community-minded adults, regardless of circumstance. We have a proud history of serving youth and elevating their voices and ideas. We are committed to building a youth center youth can have a safe place to develop positive relationships with others, find direction for their lives and contribute positively to their communities.
Community Inspired Action is inspired by faith, driven by innovation, powered by our humanity, and
built on faith and servant leadership. Our uniqueness is our passion for and adherence to our core
values. We emphasize the importance of establishing relationships and forming community among our
students, adults, staff and the clients that we serve. We are committed to the consistent application of
