A focus on people.
As the needs of our community change, the Foundation is shifting our grant processes to encourage more cooperation and less competition, more focus on outcomes and not outputs, and opportunities for listening, sharing, and moving forward together. The Foundation will build human capital by bringing together knowledge, experience, and expertise in cooperative efforts to support people and places. The Foundation will serve as a champion for collaboration focused on helping meet basic human needs through real-issue, systemic root-cause outcomes, rather than short-term symptoms.
The Engage pillar focuses on our most underserved populations in the 10-parish Capital Area with these specific goals:
- Decrease percentage of families who are liquid-asset poor
- Increase healthcare utilization by families below the ALICE threshold
- Decrease recidivism rate
In December 2022, 23 organizations were selected to have meaningful impact on the Engage goals.
