our work

what we do

We are fighting for a community in which no one lives in poverty, everyone has a home and food to eat, every person has access to quality healthcare and a supportive neighborhood, and that every child has the tools and resources they need to succeed in school and beyond.

To achieve this mission our work falls into four focus areas.

Breaking the Cycle
of Poverty

Giving Kids an
Equal Chance

Building Strong,
Healthy Communities
