Mission

Supporting a Healthy Community

Goals

Our Foundation creates opportunities for individuals and organizations to come together, innovate, and collaborate to address issues that impact the health of our community and its people.  We provide the venue for the innovation and collaboration and funds to support it.  Our Initiatives serve as a gateway to connect individuals in the community to additional services from organizations we partner with, such as Plateau Outreach Ministries and NEXUS Youth and Family, Enumclaw Senior Center and Valley Cities Counseling.

  • Bridge the gaps in local budgets that impact community wellness
  • Increase wellness in the communities we serve
  • Build partnerships with organizations with similar missions and visions to accomplish mutual goals to build capacity across the Plateau
  • Increase awareness and support of the Foundation in the communities we serve
  • Expand and enhance our funding sources

Values

  • Healthy community, our reason for being.
  • The spirit of service to the community.
  • Responsible stewardship of our supporters’ contributions.
