To bring the community together in the spirit of collaboration and compassion to best serve Chandler.
In 2009, a group of nonprofits, faith based organizations, and businesses in Chandler started to meet and discuss needs they were seeing in the community. This group grew to include others who were interested in making a difference through collaboration.
For Our City - Chandler started as a branch of the nonprofit, Care Inc. Other communities also adopted the For Our City model as a catalyst for constructive change at community grassroots levels. It provides a "safe place" for municipal, faith, nonprofit and business leaders to dialogue for effective solutions for their community.
CARE INC is a civic nonprofit organization that serves the leaders of local government, faith, nonprofit and business communities by providing a safe place for discussion, implementation, action and service that brings solutions to the needs of people. http://www.care-inc.org/
