We are all connected. When families are stable, when children succeed, when individuals stay healthy, our community is stronger. The foundation of stable families begins with income, education, and health. Thank you for all you do to make our community better.
We are working to advance the common good by focusing on income, education, health and safety net services. These are the building blocks for a strong community - a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. We work to identify issues, develop community partners, implement solutions, and measure results. Here are the outcomes we and our partners are working to achieve:
