The Bucks-Mont Collaborative is rooted in a regional consortium established in 1987. The ultimate goal was (and remains) to better serve the region’s at-risk residents by fostering joint problem solving, relationship building and sharing of information about research-based solutions. In 2014, Greater North Penn Region joined with three additional regions - Eastern, Southeastern, and Upper Perkiomen - to form "The Collaborative" to strengthen nonprofits and improve communities across a much larger swath of Montco. Since we include many members who are headquartered in or serve Bucks County, in 2015 we opted to become the Bucks-Mont Collaborative. We look forward to building even stronger relationships with our colleagues in Bucks.
