Impact Cabinet

The Impact Cabinet meets four times a year in March, June, September, and December.  The Cabinet is responsible for understanding local needs and driving lasting change for EDUCATION, INCOME & HEALTH.  Over 100 members of a separate volunteer opportunity called, "Community Investment Teams" (C.I.T.) meet each spring to monitor individual program contributions to goals and award effective programs with grants for the year.
