With the support of outstanding volunteers, staff, pro bono attorneys, not-for-profit organizations, businesses and concerned citizens, we are able to establish new projects and initiatives uniquely designed to meet specific needs in the community.

While some issues are best handled at the legislative level, many others can be addressed locally. As these needs are identified, projects can be developed to help fulfill them by devoting resources, conducting public outreach, seeking donations or whatever else may be required.

You can learn more about our projects and find out how you or your business can help.
