Strengthened Partnership with Community
Our network of advocates, civic leaders, and community-based organizations (CBO) is strong and growing. As we educate our residents, we want to work to better engage and empower our CBOs through strengthened partnerships. During Action Plan workshops, experts and organizational leaders shared some of the challenges of working with the County: difficulty with contracting, lack of understanding of County government, and a lack of clarity for best ways to engage County government.
The future of our County is one in which partnerships allow us to bring our best skills to the table and help others to do the same. County government can start this work by providing orientation opportunities for CBOs seeking to better understand local government.
