“Every time the board was together the conversation emphasized community needs. I appreciated the very different perspectives and the diversity of opinions around the table. We had a variety of approaches to solving problems, and we made sure to set the table for change in a way that invited all parts of the community to be present. I am very proud of the work I see the Community Foundation doing in catalyzing leadership development. The Community Foundation has really attended to making sure that community members most impacted are leading solutions to the problems we’re facing.”
