    Strengthening Community

    We pursue ambitious, meaningful outcomes that benefit our community. We utilize community needs analysis to make informed decisions for creating long-term impact and to advocate for systemic change within our community.

    Maintaining Quality

    We strive to provide the highest quality of direct services to our clients. We establish consistent and equitable guidelines for selecting and monitoring subcontractors and/or sub-grantees who provide services to our clients.

    Demonstrating Transparency and Accountability

    We are transparent and collaborative in our work with our clients, strategic partners, and the broader community. We commit to good stewardship of resources and financial accountability.

    OUR HISTORY

    Since its founding in 1940, the Community Council has identified services that are needed in the community, assessed how best services could be delivered to meet social issues, and mobilized and implemented action plans working in concert with its member agencies and public sector resources.

     

    Pervasive issues over time have included juvenile delinquency and welfare; seniors; public health; daycare; and legislative advocacy. The Community Council met these challenges through fact-based research, deploying volunteers, incubating new services and agencies, expanding government programs where appropriate, convening collaborative work and delivering selected direct services.
