Who We Are

Community Resilience Organizations (CROs) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit helping to build strong, welcoming, resourceful communities that can address the challenges of today and the future - whether climate change, social disconnects, economic hardships, or other unforeseen disruptions.  Addressing these challenges can be daunting even when we’re not in an acute emergency - and getting from ideas to the action phase is not always straightforward. CROs will meet you where you’re at and help you assess vulnerabilities, determine priorities, implement projects that build local and regional resilience, and celebrate successes.

Re-localization of critical resources like water, energy, and food is a strategic tool for climate mitigation, adaptation, and social change. We provide resources and frameworks for communities to address vulnerabilities and harness their place-based strengths by supporting local resource sovereignty and building social connectivity.
