  • Develop and sustain partnerships and coalitions that, together, build a better, healthier community
  • Facilitate the development and execution of community programs that improve the health of the community
  • Develop the resources, monetary and in-kind, needed to do good in the community
  • Perform outreach services that connect people in our communities with the services needed.
