The Collaborative has surveyed its members to aggregate the economic impact of the nonprofit sector in our region. We have also gathered statistics on the overall importance of the sector as a provider of highly skilled jobs.

When legislative actions on the federal, state or local levels threaten this key sector and, therefore, the health and well-being of the people we serve, the Collaborative provides tools (sample letters to the editor, talking points, training, etc.) to assist our members and the broader community to speak with one voice on behalf of our most vulnerable residents – older adults, children, people with disabilities, and many others.
