Our Programs

Through collaboration with many local charities, businesses and government organizations, we provide direct impact programs that serve specifically identified needs. Some programs are fully-fledged initiatives that improve thousands of lives each year. Other programs are pilot initiatives created to rapidly iterate potential solutions that can then be expanded upon and scaled up by the appropriate organization in the county.
