Children and Youth

Developing Children & Youth

We improve early learning opportunities to make sure that all children start kindergarten ready to learn and invest in programs that promote healthy youth development.

Basic Needs

Improving Self-Sufficiency

We support programs that provide families with food, shelter, clothing, transportation and other basic needs as they work toward becoming self-sufficient.

Health and Healing

Promoting Health & Healing

We invest in programs to ensure mental health services, health care and dental care are available to all residents. We support programs that work with victims of sexual abuse and domestic violence.


Strengthening Families

We support programs that give families the necessary tools to succeed, whether young families with children, older adults or persons with disabilities.
