INDIANAPOLIS -

The Central Indiana Community Foundation has announced its new 5-year strategic plan. The foundation says it aims to create environments that focus on empowering people regardless of class or race.

CICF announced a focus around five community leadership areas that they hope will work together.

The areas are:

  • Family Stabilization: Everyone should have equitable opportunities to obtain housing, transportation and health services.
  • Neighborhood Empowerment and Placemaking: Communities are most successful and thriving when investments are resident-driven and when neighborhoods have access to culturally relevant art, nature and beauty every day.
  • Economic Mobility: All people can rise out of poverty by acquiring skills that lead to living wage jobs, and if they are not held back by inequitable policies.
  • Criminal Justice Reform: Residents have a right to live in safe communities, and we need to commit to better outcomes for people interacting with the criminal justice system.
  • Dismantling Systemic Racism: As a foundation, CICF is committed to becoming a fully inclusive, anti-racist and multicultural organization.

 
“We know that there is a growing gap between the affluent and poor in Central Indiana, and that race has a profound impact on opportunity,” said Greg Hahn, CICF board chair, in a news release. “People are being left behind systematically and we are ready to change that.”

The health and wellness of Indiana’s economy is dependent on the state’s manufacturing industry. But Hoosiers face a challenge: it is expected that nearly a quarter of the current manufacturing workforce will be of retirement age in the next 10 years and we lack the generational workforce to make up that gap.
