Impact Monterey County is a chance for everyone in our community to be heard. Yet what is a community? How is a community defined? Communities are by nature a shared idea. Yet what constitutes a community can be a personal matter. We are also not limited to being in only one community. All of us are able to identify with multiple communities. Before having community discussions it is important to have a common definition for what a community is.
United Way together with our partners involved in Impact Monterey County are working together to create community-wide social change. In order to effect this change, we plan to use a framework known as Collective Impact (CI).
