Innovation

Problems like poverty, homelessness, and education are deeply complex and require complex solutions. Public-private partnerships are an innovative response to complex community needs.

COLLABORATION

Too many problems remain unsolved because communities don’t know how to work together. That’s not the case in Marion County. Join us and be a part of the change!

RESILIENCE

Whether it was facing COVID-19, the Great Recession, or responding to complex medical needs, our community responds when things get tough. Join us in making a more resilient Marion County.

WE’VE SURVIVED A RECESSION AND A GLOBAL PANDEMIC. THE CHALLENGES WE’RE FACING DON’T STAND A CHANCE WHEN WE STAND TOGETHER.

We all want to live in a resilient Marion County, but in order to do that we’ve got to respond
to complex problems with creative solutions. Unfortunately, many community organizations operate in silos instead of collaborating with one another. It’s incredibly discouraging to have all the tools to respond to complex problems but not know how to get everyone to the table. Because when a community comes together, anything is possible.
