When Aspire was created, we solicited the input of hundreds of people in the community to determine our most critical needs. Included were leaders from education, labor, business, government and social service agencies, as well as faith-based, philanthropic and nonprofit organizations.
In the end we identified five outcomes that we seek to achieve. We look at them on a continuum from cradle to career. When everyone in the community works toward the achievement of these outcomes, we will make a sustainable difference in the lives of children and families in Lucas County.
