Southern is committed to revitalizing rural communities in Arkansas and Mississippi. We measure our success though the increased opportunities residents have to improve their lives, plan for their futures, and re-imagine their communities. We call it “Building communities. Changing lives.”
Building Communities – Southern prioritizes its development work by collaborating with community residents, organizations, business, and government to create strategic community plans that guide all other development programs and activities. So far, our work has resulted in the investment of millions of dollars in target communities and the creation of thousands of new jobs and businesses.
Changing Lives – Southern’s impact at the community level is magnified by its direct positive impact in the lives of individuals and families in the target rural communities. Residents have saved millions of dollars for use toward home purchase, college education, and business development; have improved their lives through the use of new health, education, financial, and youth development opportunities, and have become leaders in their communities through participation in strategic planning.
For the latest impact data and statistics, please read our annual report and other publications.
