Community Context

Our work is informed by the adverse impacts disproportionately borne by Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) and other marginalized communities in our region. Our 13 branches recently engaged with their local communities to establish a continuous learning approach to understanding their evolving priorities and key community needs. Disparity is deeply rooted in many of our systems, manifesting as barriers to equitable outcomes that disproportionality affect marginalized communities. In our research, youth & teen programming, community gathering places, healthcare and behavioral health surfaced as current priorities for a majority of the communities we serve.
