About Us

OUR MISSION:

Mobilize the caring power of our community to achieve impactful systemic social change within our county.

OUR VISION:

Accomplish Our Four Bold Goals

By 2025:

1. 100% of our children will enter kindergarten ready to learn.

2. 100% of students and adults will have post-secondary credentials.

3. Decrease individuals and families living in poverty by 50%.

4. 100% of individuals, children, and families will have a medical home.

WE MUST THINK DIFFERENTLY. WE MUST WORK TOGETHER.

Here in Lancaster County, our neighbors have increasing needs and fragmented help. And everyone’s resources are limited. We can no longer try to solve today’s problems by being a mile wide and an inch deep. We must address underlying causes and stop bandaging the issues they create. No single organization or individual can accomplish this alone. We have to:

  • Continually seek community input

  • Employ research and data

  • Focus on long-term solutions

  • Break down walls between service providers

  • Work together to improve the lives of this generation and the next

Great things will happen when we LIVE UNITED.
