Our Initiatives

Special Initiatives

We know that a lot goes into making a community a place of opportunity. Housing, economic development, and jobs are all common and essential parts of a quality of life plan. But there are times when our work requires special efforts to build a place where families can thrive.

These special initiatives expand the effectiveness of our larger vision by offering support for sports & recreation, arts & cultural activities and safety programs. Each of these are aspects that can bolster a sense of community.
