• BOUNDARY CROSSING AND COLLABORATION
We are willing to cross political, social, ethnic and economic boundaries and partner with others to achieve community outcomes. We will lead “beyond the walls” to create an inclusive, cohesive community through partnership and collaboration.
• COMMITMENT TO OUTCOMES
We are willing to take responsibility for tasks and achieving specified outcomes. We are committed to staying involved until the tasks are completed.
• “ART OF THE POSSIBLE” THINKING
We believe that anything is possible in the Fresno Region. We will envision “success without limitations” and then backward map a specific, attainable strategy for achieving that vision.

We are focused on using a strengths-based, asset-oriented approach to people and issues. We believe that positive change occurs when we appreciate value and invest in what is best in our people and community.
