COMMUNITY ADVOCATES NETWORK

The Community Advocates Network (CAN) is a volunteer-based, community partnership outreach initiative that invites collaboration between community participants and local governments to provide individuals and families with advocacy and services to meet their basic needs in life. The network enables partner organizations to exchange ideas that inspire action and connection across communities. CAN aims to foster healthy communities in which every individual is inspired by a life of hope and fulfillment. CAN exists to:

  1. Offer a community voice to the voiceless

  2. Provide greater accessibility of resources to community stakeholders

  3. Cultivate a welcoming culture that embraces open and honest communication

  4. Share resources and facilitate connections to build a strong community network of support

  5. Strengthen equity and vibrancy in community resources

  6. Establish and build a foundation on compassion, hope, trust, and commitment.
