This mission is realized through the research, protection, enhancement, preservation and promotion of the rural heritage, culture, recreation, economy, history and landscape for the benefit of people, property and entities with an interest in the Endless Mountains region.

The vision of the Endless Mountains Heritage Region, Inc. is the Endless Mountains, a beautiful, safe, historic and prosperous region to live, work and visit.

In addition, the Steering Committee of the EMHR Management Action Plan laid out the following Vision Statement:
In the year 2020, the Endless Mountains region is a haven for the spirit. It is a place where we enjoy peace, quiet, and safety, and the thousand stars of the night sky.  We live in harmony with our natural and cultural heritage, enjoying a beautiful countryside and healthy settlements that reflect our history.  We are a rural community that works together to ensure that all who live, visit, and invest here appreciate our respect for the land as a source of prosperity and community tradition.  In accommodating the needs of future generations, we seek to foster the entrepreneurial spirit, personal independence, and community values that are part of our heritage.  We achieved this vision by purposeful hard work, encouraging and helping each other, and understanding, respecting, and communicating what we have set out to become.
