We have always been about the difference we can make in our community and how best to help those in need. That’s why we’ve transitioned to community impact, taking a more holistic viewpoint. It is about understanding the gravity and interconnectedness of the social challenges we face. It is about building partnerships, leveraging resources, empowering a community, and building long-term solutions.
We Fight for Health; so all, especially children & youth learn to make healthy choices.
We Fight for Education; helping ensure children enter kindergarten ready to learn gives them the opportunity to reach their full potential.
We Fight for Financial Stability; housing & homelessness affect the well-being of our entire community, young & old alike.
We all have a stake in creating a flourishing community. When a child succeeds in school, when families & individuals are safe, healthy and jobs are available, when we invest in work that helps break the cycle of inter-generational poverty, we all win.
We continue to evolve, to look at how we can leverage resources and make investments that will help people move across the bridge to prosperity. One key piece of this work, is our role as a lead partner in Kitsap Strong, a community impact initiative focused on preventing and mitigating Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Our collective goal is to improve the well-being and educational attainment of Kitsap residents, through a focus on empowerment and equity, the prevention of ACEs, and the building of resilience.
Kitsap Strong is a network of community leaders collaboratively implementing a theory of community improvement grounded in NEAR science and equity.
We win by Living United. By forging unlikely partnerships. By finding new solutions to old problems. By mobilizing the best resources, and by inspiring you to join with us as we fight for what matters.
Because change doesn’t happen alone. We have one life. To live better, we must Live United!
