We believe lasting, positive change begins with access to opportunities. We bridge the opportunity gap by connecting as many people as possible to effective health care, education and essential human services. We believe: – Poverty can no longer be permitted to be a predictor of a person’s success. – Everyone deserves hope, dignity and purpose. – Everyone should have the chance to build a better future. – Key to success is access to the right opportunities, relationships, resources and networks. – It’s possible to break out of individual and intergenerational cycles of poverty. – Successful communities embrace diversity and inclusion as a competitive advantage. authorized trainer and proctor for the National Retail Federation Foundation.
