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.
