Our Vision is that Allen County residents increase their self-reliance by moving from dependence to independence to helping build community through recognition of their interdependence.

Our Mission is to provide grants, leadership training, conferences, workshops, and thought-leading speakers to strengthen organizations that serve children and families -- particularly those with the greatest economic need and the least opportunity.    

Our Strategic Intent is to identify and support organizations led by adaptive board and key staff members that promote self-reliance and build community.  These organizations will meet the strategic intent criteria of mission-driven, well-governed, and results-oriented.
