An Update from Our Founder & CEO
“We all do better when we work together.
Our differences do matter but our common humanity matters more.”
President Bill Clinton
40th President of the United State
The past few months have been like no other in our lifetime. President Clinton’s message is one that everyone needs to hear and embrace. Regardless of politics, fear and uncertainty of the times, we have the power to resolve our issues peacefully and pull together as a nation.
At One CommunityUSA™, we strive to improve communities by building ‘Cities of Opportunity’ for all. Core programs address needs in education, health, reentry second chance opportunities (military and civilians), civic engagement, safety and citizen advocacy. Evidence-based programs engage law enforcement/first responders and citizens in open conversations where every voice matters, instilling a sense of being heard and valued. Our programs provide the necessary boots-on-the-ground tools and practical approach when addressing and resolving ongoing societal issues leading to safer neighborhoods, local economic growth and a stronger country.
We need to remember that ‘We’re all in this…Together’. God bless America.
