Love Thy Neighbor is a mission-driven organization. We do equity work that includes advocating and educating for affordable housing. 

What does it mean to design with equity in mind? It starts by understanding the inequities in our communities, schools, healthcare systems, food sources, and the environment. From a place of understanding and a commitment to justice, we can provide structures, systems, and developments that put people first. 

Equitable development cares about environmental justice.

Equitable development is concerned about the welfare of our children. 

 

Equitable development is concerned about the vulnerable.
