our vision

Everyone engages in building a vibrant, healthy, resilient community.

We believe that every member of our community has both an opportunity and the ability to build the community in which they wish to live, work and play in a way that is meaningful to them.  We believe that our community is vibrant, healthier and more resilient because of what we do.

our mission

We provide resources and leadership to enable the development of people and organizations.

We believe that if we were 100% successful in our activities, everyone would know how to get involved in building our community and would have the resources, skills and support to do so. We believe that when people and organizations are supported and strengthened, amazing things will happen.

our values

1. We encourage a culture of giving.
We value everyone’s participation in our communities. We believe our communities are stronger when people contribute their time and unique abilities. We believe everyone has something to give, offer, and contribute. We want to foster this culture internally within our organization and externally within our community.

2. We do what we think is right.
We expect integrity and transparency within ourselves and our organization. We believe good governance is the foundation of healthy organizations and we apply this to our own organization. We embrace best practices. We take the initiative to advocate for our vision, our mission, our constituencies and our stakeholders. We deliver a high quality of service to the best of our ability.

3. We believe being inclusive strengthens our community.
We are proactive in encouraging equity, diversity and inclusiveness by being accessible, respectful and welcoming at all times. We foster this approach in all that we do. We believe that people and organizations working together to collaborate contributes to a resilient community. We will encourage, promote and participate in activities that promote inclusiveness.

4. We embody a culture of continuous learning.
We are a learning organization. We believe our communities are ever changing and growing. We are flexible and open to embracing opportunities and meeting challenges as they arise to serve our vision and mission. We are resourceful, responsive, dynamic, adaptive and reflective. We ensure our activities are outcome oriented and align with our vision and mission.

We provide resources and
leadership to enable the development
of people and organizations.
