Making A Difference For Those In Need

For more than two decades, I have watched our community change. Needs continues to grow and we need to continue to evolve to mobilize our community to volunteer, advocate for better policies and provide support for people in need.

By focusing on solving our pressing issues with preventative solutions and bringing together the entire community — policymakers, corporate leaders, agency partners, and people like you who want to help – we can continue to assist our neighbors in need.
