Who We Are

We are an alliance of people standing as bridges to help build strong people, strong families, and strong neighborhoods.

Our Values

  • We stand alongside people believing our presence matters.
  • We advocate for people believing our support and defense of people matters.
  • We recognize that every person has extraordinary value, worth, and beauty.
  • We work to bring people together with face-to-face interactions believing that shared stories and experiences reduce fear and builds relationships.
  • We want to fill gaps in services and resources designed to assist people. We recognize our city is filled with amazing people and organizations doing many great things to help people. We don’t want to replicate or compete with these services. We work to identify the areas of need and opportunity being overlooked or unaddressed in our neighborhoods.
  • We’re creative problem solvers willing to address challenges with new ideas and approaches. We start our thinking and planning from outside the box!
  • We are collaborators and believe that our work is more effective, longer lasting, and more fulfilling when we work with others to accomplish our common vision and goals. We’re constantly looking for people, organizations, and businesses that we can partner with.
