Council of Community Leaders

The Council of Community Leaders identifies issues that impact the life outcomes of at-risk children, individuals and families and examines the ability of any one organization or sector in the community to address the issue(s).  The Council then assesses the issue(s), and develops and implements strategies for addressing the issues. The Council explores emerging trends and issues at quarterly meetings.
