Growing up Healthy 2

Our Mission

To mobilize the resources and caring power of individuals, organizations and networks to strengthen the community.

Our Charter

To raise funds, provide leadership, identify and address community needs, and provide an effective and balanced delivery system of human care.

Partner Agencies

Our partner agencies help families and individuals in crisis situations that can result in food insecurity, lack of safe housing, job loss and disability. They also help us raise all of our children to succeed in school and life with hope and strong ethics. Our partner agencies deliver evidence-based programs with measurable outcomes.

Local and Efficient

Your donation stays in the Northfield area. One gift helps in so many ways, striking a balance between helping those in need today and investing in a brighter future.

Our administration costs are low. 87 cents of every dollar contributed goes to fund programs. Your donation also helps us organize volunteerism – outstripping what your contribution could buy by putting hands to work for no cost.
