Summit On Poverty 2020 – Postponed
In case you haven’t heard, after consulting our partners, we decided to postpone the 2020 Summit on Poverty until 2021. We believe at this time, our resources must be used to alleviate the pain and suffering in our community.
This is tough, but we’ll recover together.
We just want to remind you that we’re here and we’re ready to fight for the people we serve.
A Special Thanks To Our Appointed Partner Agencies
Our Board of Commissioners consists of representatives of three different sectors of the community. One-third of the members are appointed by public officials and a third are appointed by the private sector.
