It is our mission to identify and develop leaders, organize neighborhoods, and build the capacity necessary to create positive community change. This work is accomplished by fulfilling several key principles:
TO ORGANIZE individuals, organizations, and neighborhoods working on quality of life issues in the Mahoning Valley into a supportive and united entity that can deliver people and get things done.
TO TRAIN individuals and organizations to identify the needs of the community and to hold public institutions accountable to meeting those needs.
TO PROVIDE RESOURCES through technical assistance and support, assist organizations in developing membership, raising funds, and identifying issues and problems that block attainment of a healthy community.
TO LINK neighborhoods to larger community initiatives - regional, statewide, and national - for the betterment of the Mahoning Valley.
TO GIVE HOPE to individuals and local grassroots organizations working to create sustainable neighborhoods and enhance their community together.
TO ENCOURAGE individuals and neighborhoods affected by an issue to create a campaign to address that issue.
