Our Focus Areas

We assist our communities through increasing access to foundational needs and education that enable all to thrive.

Everyone deserves to have their basic needs met. Whether that is food, shelter or clothing, providing the dignity and value of life preserving goods is the foundation to our organization.

Strengthening our family and children resources helps strengthen our communities overall. Whether after school programs, enrichment or civic centers, or opportunities that care and teach, these offerings create a backbone on which community members can rely.

Our brightest future is in tomorrow’s youth. By investing in equal access to education, including programs for financial literacy, we can help build a foundation for our next generations opportunity and potential.
