Check out our new report, Catalysts for Change
As the Foundation continues its work this year towards launching a new strategic plan, it’s important to take a look back and see how far we’ve come. Our new report, Catalysts for Change: Improving Health for All in Howard County, shows how we’ve gone about leading systemic change over the past six years across a number of key priority areas – always with racial equity as our guiding principle. Through engaging the public, community and coalition building, strategic grantmaking and advocacy and policy change, we work to make it easier for all people in Howard County to be healthy. There is still work to do – but we have much to be proud of. Read the report now to learn more about the impact of our work with the community!
