We believe that the well-being of everyone who resides in our neighborhood is connected to that of every other. And so, we work with individuals and the community to address critical issues that are best tackled through collaboration with multiple organizations and civic leaders.

We  look for opportunities to develop long-term solutions to community challenges. In our efforts to advance public will, we serve as a partner, catalyst, convener and resource center. The roles we play are as varied as the needs of our neighborhood, but they each start with the premise that communities are built, improved and strengthened by the people who live in them.
