About CIL

We Advocate and Advance Opportunities for the Communities We Call Home! 
Our Mission:
Can I Live, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) national residents' association dedicated to advancing progressive housing policies, economic inclusion, and personal responsibility for residents of public housing communities.
Our Vision:    
We are building an inclusive society, where all people can build powerful lives centered around great health and economic empowerment. 

What We Believe:
As a faith-based organization, we believe that all Americans are created equal and possessed of inalienable rights to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness-and to justice under the law. Yet the entitlements provided to people living at or below poverty are structured to keep them poor while entitlements offered to wealthier Americans and corporations assist in wealth creation and enhanced prosperity.
