Executive Director: Latrisha Anderson
So many people (including you reading this) have MEGA ideas that can transform communities and one day change the world. Unfortunately, for these same individuals, dreams and visions often go unfulfilled without access to the proper resources (funds, tools, and training) to help them succeed. At VISIONful Communities our purpose is to fill this gap, “by equipping YOUNG ADULTS, MINORITIES, and WOMEN to LAUNCH, SUSTAIN, and GROW thriving organizations and businesses to transform communities.”
