Congregational Redevelopment Services (CRS) has developed partnerships with other like-minded organizations who have expertise in developing; selling and leasing property; and creating community hubs; and the skills needed to create and implement a plan.
Here are links to some of those organizations.
The United Church of Canada (UCC) established Kindred Works to provide a way to repurpose their properties and at the same time respond to Canada’s housing crisis while creating lasting benefits and a legacy for future generations.
Kindred Works is an independent company who redevelops and manages land on behalf of the UCC, its congregations and ecumenical partners. They transform church properties into housing and shared spaces that are built to meet broad community needs, promote sustainability and advance right relations, anti-colonialism and anti-racism approaches.
EDGE, a program of the United Church of Canada, offers facilitated community learning experiences about curiosity, sustainability, leadership, innovation, and future planning through a variety of programs including Round Table Talks, one- on-one coaching with lay and ordained leaders.
