  • Create a secure and stable home environment within which Creekside Commons residents can continue to build and strengthen a workable foundation for their lives.
  • Build connectedness between Creekside Commons residents and their surrounding communities, such that they create a strong sense of belonging and desire to integrate into their new residence and neighborhood.
