About Communities Unlimited

Communities Unlimited's shared goal is to provide deep and lasting impact in communities by combining fundamental infrastructure services with economic entrepreneurial growth strategies.

We are unifying the building blocks needed to create vibrant and prosperous communities. Communities Unlimited serves seven southern states: Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Alabama. This is an area that includes 60% of this country’s persistently poor counties, including large percentages of African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans.

The mission of Communities Unlimited is to move rural and under-resourced communities in areas of persistent poverty to sustainable prosperity.


Lending Intern

June 2021 - July 2021 Fayetteville, AR
“In my experience, Communities Unlimited offers a warm, moderately-paced, human-centered work environment. While assisting clients with loan forgiveness applications via telephone calls, I was encouraged to listen to their stories and learn more about their situations to be able to connect them with additional resources. It was very rewarding to see the real impact this organization has on people in low-income, under-resourced areas. Another strength of this internship was the quality of training. My supervisors made a concerted effort to teach me about every department in the organization, and I felt well-prepared to discuss various resources with clients.”
