An Overview of Community Teamwork
Community Teamwork was founded in 1965 by a group of local leaders seeking to increase community economic opportunities and self-sufficiency. With the hard work and dedication of our staff supported by our dynamic Board of Directors and Executive Management and Senior Leadership teams, Community Teamwork continues to fulfill this purpose by providing direct services, collaborating with other public and private entities and by applying comprehensive strategies that help to address the complex issues of poverty.
Building Stability and Creating Opportunity
Today, Community Teamwork’s mission is to be a catalyst for social change, strengthen communities and reduce poverty by delivering vital services, and collaborating with key stakeholders to create housing, education and economic opportunities.
Daily, we mobilize resources and find innovative ways to address issues across the spectrum of needs, from people who are homeless, facing foreclosure or eviction to people ready to purchase a home or launch a small business.
