Our Approach

The deck is stacked. We’re reshuffling.


Income and opportunity gaps in the U.S. are widening each year. Income growth for households in the middle and lower economic classes has slowed, while higher classes have enjoyed strong growth. These disparities have minimized economic mobility among populations who live and work in communities with economic challenges. The current economic system perpetuates this inequity.

Changes We Seek

This cycle must be broken, and CRF is dedicated to leveling the playing field. We believe we must empower people, build sustainable communities and fight for economic justice.

How we Work

Our Impact
