  1. Addressing the lack of affordable, safe, and secure housing in our community.
  2. Addressing issues of poverty and food insecurity in our community.
  3. Responding to issues of injustice.
  4. Addressing the needs of immigrants and refugees.
  5. Raising awareness about and support for needed services to respond to crises and other needs in our community and beyond.
