What is MVOC?
Founded in 2008, the Mahoning Valley Organizing Collaborative (MVOC) is an innovative community organization that brings together neighborhood, faith-based and labor groups in Trumbull, Mahoning, and Columbiana counties to build the capacity necessary to create sustainable change in our community.
