We are a broad-based coalition of community groups. Our mission is to launch a new wave of volunteerism for the many worthwhile programs and activities
that are struggling with the issues that trouble our community – illiteracy, high school dropout rates, crime and youth violence, drug abuse, domestic
abuse, neighborhood blight and unemployment.
It is our belief that everyone can play a role and render service, thereby having a greater impact on solving these chronic problems. Our goal is to unite
the entire community — nonprofit organizations, churches, schools, the business community and the media — in an unprecedented call to action.
