When it comes to creating lasting change, it takes dedication, passion and a lot of analysis. Statistics, research and rigorous follow-up go into every initiative we put in place. It’s how we know what’s working — and what’s not. Each year, we track progress and make modifications to build more effective and impactful programs for our community.
