Founded in 1981, Isles, Inc. is a community development and environmental organization in Trenton, New Jersey. With a mission to foster self-reliant families in healthy, sustainable communities, Isles develops cost effective, powerful ways to strengthen people and places in challenging urban settings.
• Revitalizes communities by developing green affordable homes, parks and community agriculture.
• Trains and educates youth and adults through a vocational high school and green job training center.
• Builds wealth by supporting social enterprises, microbusinesses, and other financial and credit building services.
• Stimulates green, healthy living by cleaning up environmental hazards, fostering energy efficiency and promoting healthy lifestyles.
In addition, Isles promotes public policies that support family self-reliance and community health. Isles believes that even the most distressed places (or “isles”) hold untapped assets and human capacity. Self-sufficiency and healthy environments are keys to sustainable communities.
