Mobilize collective action to create pathways out of poverty.

We envision a poverty-free community, where…

All children and youth achieve their full potential, complete high school and set a course toward a bright future.

All individuals and families attain greater independence and financial stability, contributing to their personal success and the success of our economy.

Everyone feels a meaningful connection to the community, enjoying a strong sense of well being and safety, for themselves and their families.

In pursuing our vision, through our values we will:

Provide non-partisan leadership in social change
Endorse innovation, partnerships and collective action
Deliver meaningful, lasting results
Respect community wisdom and encourage citizen involvement
Encourage and promote volunteerism and volunteer leadership
Demonstrate trust, integrity, transparency, inclusivity and respect
Embrace diversity
