Our Vision

Working together to create better opportunities for all to thrive.

Our Mission

Helping neighbors discover support by building partnerships between the government, faith, nonprofit and business communities.

Our Values

  • We value the importance of supporting and building healthy communities.
  • We value partnership. We believe we can provide greater support to address our communities' unmet needs through collaboration, rather than working separately.
  • We value our differences in services, needs and strengths. We believe everyone has something unique to contribute.
  • We value diversity and inclusivity. We celebrate the rich cultural, ethnic and spiritual differences of our communities.
  • We value treating each other and those we serve with respect and dignity.
  • We value fostering supportive and trusting relationships.
  • We value leading by example.
