Leadership 18 CEOs bring unique perspectives to problem solving. Many of our chapters and affiliates have served communities continuously for more than one hundred years. Most importantly, all of our member organizations share a specific mission to improve human development through deep community relationships. We are powered by a steadfast dedication to caring, dignity, grace, social justice, and empowerment. 

Through the years, we have learned important lessons about effective and, in some instances, ineffective strategies for change. Our commitment as a collaborative is to share our knowledge and to pursue new approaches that expand our reach and our impact for the common good.
