Together, We are a Community United

United We Rise. Rise With Us.

Even separate, we’re bonded through community. Even at a distance, we stand strong together.

Right now, we’re finding new ways to step up for one another without the ability to hold, or hug, or even offer an un-gloved hand. Together, we’re finding ways to see the hope still shining bright in the hearts of our neighbors, to hear it in the nightly howl that rallies our support for each other, and for those on the front lines, to feel it in the voices speaking up and refusing to back down. Together, we are defining the power of a Community United.

To everyone who has volunteered their time, to everyone who has donated to meet the needs of our community, and to everyone who has shared a message of hope, a message of change, a message of progress — you are the heart and soul of a Community United.

A Community United in Action

Creating a Community United takes all of us.

To everyone who wants to understand how to do more, to affect change, to be part of the short- and long-term solutions our community needs, this is for you. This is an invitation to get inspired to unite with us in supporting our community.
