At CommunityWise we strive for democratic representation, as the origins of the organization stem from the tenants themselves, working to take part in decisions about the building they occupied.  We actively encourage an environment of collective decision making and facilitate opportunities for people to participate.

The mission of the organization is carried out by the staff, board and members, who work towards common goals. There are several committees made up of Board, Staff, and Community members. These include: Finance, Building, Fund Development, Human Resources, and Governance.
