All Things in Common Initative
One of the things we on the council worked hard to put into action was the "All Things in Common" Initative. The “All Things in Common” initiative makes it easier for residents to access important resources. These centers of community involvement not only provide direct services like group-based mentoring, but referrals to city services and in-kind resources provided by our philanthropic partners. Community members will be able to get connected with a wide-range of services such as driver’s license recovery, or child support mediation. Please consider accessing this great resource!
