Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal simply is to improve the quality of life for local residents by expanding social, recreational, economic, and human services to all sectors of our local community and its residents. By working with a broad coalition and continuum of agencies, businesses, civic groups, and governmental entities, we work to identify local needs and to secure the resources needed to address those needs thereby helping to expand the continuum of community resources while minimizing the costs to local residents.

Our organization is committed to working cooperatively with all local community groups, civic organizations, business entities, and governmental agencies to ensure that we do not duplicate other programmatic efforts, address realistic and necessary community needs, operate at effective and cost efficient levels, and create positive and well developed resources for public uses.

Our most effective capability is our ability to mobilize broad sectors of the local community to help identify needs and to work cooperatively together to develop effective and cost efficient solutions to the identified needs.

Since our progress is measured by the completion of identified projects, we have continued to effectively accomplish all initiated projects to date. As our community continues to need new resources and with very limited local financial capability, our organization will continue to seek out input on future community needs and to implement successful projects to meet those needs as the community requests our assistance and support.
