By eliminating duplicated services and more efficiently using volunteer time and donor funds, these organizations and others will be able to better address needs in our community.
Our mission is connection! We seek to create a connected community where every family has the resources they need to thrive.
The Community Connection Center (“CCC”) is a one-stop-shop that will address the needs of community members by coordinating the efforts of local organizations.

By donating your time, money, or talent, we can continue to make an impact in our community for those who need it most.

With a poverty rate of over 35%, and a food insecurity rate that is nearly double that of our neighboring counties (17%), financial insecurity is commonplace.Read more
