About Us

Mission and Vision


To improve the lives of hard-working, struggling households by mobilizing the resources of local communities to create lasting change.


We are committed to ensuring that every child enters school ready to learn, every family is financially stable and every community we serve is healthy and strong. We are the recognized leader in identifying issues and pathways to solutions.

Bold: aspirational, striving for big impact

We want to make a lasting impact on the community we serve and keep bold goals in the forefront. We are willing to take risks in piloting new approaches to improve the lives of struggling households.


Innovative: forward thinking, entrepreneurial, embracing change

We are focused on forward thinking with an entrepreneurial enthusiasm, acting more like a “start-up” than an institution. We embrace change by being both nimble and flexible. We continuously look for promising practices across the country.
