Community Partners

Our Community Partners are change agents within human services. They are 501c3 organizations that are either delivering innovative care or developing new ideas and models for doing so. They also mirror The Network itself: creative, effective and focused on the highest quality standards.

Our partners are results-oriented, leveraging resources and knowledge to positively impact individuals and communities and to transform society’s vision of and approach to its most vulnerable members.

Applications for the Community Partners program are considered quarterly during the fiscal year beginning on October 1.
