Safety Net

Our largest funding pool supporting a network of over 160 nonprofit organizations providing direct services across our 16-county service area. They address needs identified in the Community Needs Assessment (CNA) and in support of our five impact pillars.


We use a systems change approach where we seek to understand and raise awareness of the most needed services and resources, and mobilize the community to address identified needs on three levels; individual, agency, and community.
