  • Direct services for uninsured and underinsured populations in Guilford, Randolph, and Rockingham County.
  • Increased access to fresh, healthy, and nourishing food in Guilford County.

A culturally vibrant Greensboro is a community where all residents have access to diverse cultural, educational, and natural resources. Our region’s vibrant culture is built upon inclusive community dialogue and civic engagement in its various forms.

  • Increasing access to and appreciation for the arts, cultural opportunities, and natural assets such as parks, especially for students and residents at or below the federal poverty line in Guilford County
