To provide communities with the resources they need to thrive in the 21st century, Creative Build’s mission is to utilize the most up to date evidence of what works in the fields of prevention science, education, and human development, to improve the lives of individuals, families, and communities.  We seek to foster creativity, innovation, and resilience though collective impact, community engagement, workforce development, education, and advocacy.  Through collaborative cross sector agreements, Creative Build works to deepen social and technical supports for positive change.


Our vision is a world where all people have the opportunity to participate in a society free of violence, injustice, discrimination, and poverty.
