We build capacity, facilitate partnerships, and invest back into the organizations who are working on the ground to address our communities most pressing needs to create a vibrant community for all.

Community Impact is how we are investing in impact in our three pillars: basic needs, early childhood success, and workforce development. We have implemented a Community Impact model to ensure we are moving the needle in areas of most need, based on research and tracked insights.
Basic needs are the non-negotiables in life. Access to food so no meal is missed, stable housing, crisis assistance, and needs in response to an emergency are all resources and needs we deserve.
Without access to educational opportunities, many children fall behind before they even start kindergarten. Providing children and families access to books, educational tools, and healthy routine learning environments is essential.
Workforce development is the people-focused approach to a community’s economic success. Offering trainings, tools, education and more focused on the workplace allows individuals to strengthen the region’s overall economy.
