The mission of Renewing Management is to restore hope by transforming communities across
Indiana. We see business as a platform to activate and support the beauty and gifts of people –
abilities that are already present in the communities we operate. We commit time and resources
to building bridges and advancing racial equity for our employees, residents, and community.
Renewing Management is committed to employing 10% of its workforce with previously incarcerated
It is recognized that incarceration rates are disproportionately high for African Americans in
Central Indiana. Renewing Management will continue to invest in building bridges to restore hope
for those who have been previously incarcerated and their families.
Employment - 10% of employees have felony convictions. In
addition to employment, they are provided hands, heart and head training weekly.
Housing - Re-Entry team members are invited to live at our
complexes with employee discount, and in 2020 an application appeal program was created to
provide an opportunity for those who would have been previously denied to obtain housing.
Renewing Management is committed to cultivating a culture where all employees are treated
respectfully, equitably, and able to thrive.
Focus Areas: Education
Renewing Management will continuously work to create a culture and environment in which employees,
regardless of race, will be treated respectfully, equitably, and able to thrive. This will start
at the corporate level with both policies and diversity, equity, and inclusion training.
Starting in 2021, Juneteenth is a company holiday. As now stated in the employee handbook, this
will be a day of mourning that slavery existed in this nation.
The entire corporate team will go through diversity, equity and Inclusion training in 2021.

Financial Tools - Renewing Management has signed a contract with
Flex that will allow residents to split up their monthly rent into smaller payments and dates
that work for them. This is expected to reduce late fees, the use of check cashing services, and
ultimately, evictions. The contract with Flex is being paid by Renewing Management.
Relationships - In 2020, a full-time Community Ambassador
position was created at Chapel Hill Apartments with the goal of serving as a liaison between
residents and management, co-creating resident-focused programming, and enhancing the community
together. A part-time Youth Ambassador has been added at Private Reserve Luxury Townhomes.

This approach has been used in other communities outside of Indiana.
An ice cream truck will be purchased in 2020.
Join us in the important work of creating racial equity in Central Indiana.
