Council of Community Leaders

The Council of Community Leaders identifies issues that impact the life outcomes of at-risk persons in the community, including children and families, that are beyond the ability of any one organization or sector to address. The Council then assesses the issue(s), and develops and implements strategies for addressing the issues.
