Our Vision

These are the building blocks for a good life – a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. Our goal is to create long-lasting changes that prevent problems from happening in the first place. We envision a community where everyone reaches their greatest potential. We will accomplish our vision by addressing three critical focus areas in our county.


  • Provide literacy programs for youth and adults to secure their educational success
  • Provide youth mentoring programs for at-risk youth

  • Work on increasing affordable housing for at-risk residents of Dunn County


  • Provide FamilyWize discount prescription drug cards for the uninsured
  • Assist in reducing substance abuse, child abuse and domestic violence
