Our Work

A platform for good

Our work is centered on people who are struggling to find support in the short term and prosperity in the long term, so that each person is able to feel a deep sense of belonging in their community of choice, with the resources to live, work, and thrive together.

Owning Our Future

We are committed to ensuring that people can meet their basic needs in the moment, whether it’s because of emergencies like wildfires and pandemics, or ongoing crises like poverty.

We organize, strategize, and activate the community into action so that we can create shared prosperity, together. We are confident that by uplifting the collective experience and resources of people and partners, we can navigate the most complex issues facing our communities.

Multiply your impact

Our work is made possible by generous contributions—big and small—from people like you. Give today to help your neighbors care for their loved ones, go to a high-quality school, and pursue their dreams.
