In the first major engagement with the community about the new direction, the organization held three Summits involving nearly 1000 people across the state. Political leaders, business people, healthcare providers, educators, community leaders, students, social services professionals and more began to create the new vision for each of the impact areas and to hone in on a focal point of impact. Today all three impact groups have made significant grants to targeted projects. Relationships with constituencies have strengthened. And the organization has dramatically increased its leverage through innovative public policy, especially in affordable housing. It is well on its way to transforming itself from a distributor to a powerful catalyst for social change.
