Communities in the cradle to career network are working to improve systems that impact youth and families. Share why one adjacent sector is important to you.

Prior to coming to StriveTogether, I worked for almost a decade at a social service organization near downtown Cincinnati. I fully understand how access to quality health care and related services is vital for a community to thrive. Unless a person is physically and mentally well, all areas of their life, and those of their immediate family, will be impacted in a negative way. I love working at StriveTogether because in supporting student success, the whole picture matters and is taken into consideration.
