- IE RISE
We provide leadership and support to The Inland Empire Roadmap to an Inclusive and Sustainable Economy (IE RISE). IE RISE invites leaders of diverse sectors and initiatives throughout the Inland Empire to connect, communicate, dream, plan, collaborate, and take actions that advance our core values of resilience, inclusion, sustainability, and equity. In doing so, it serves as our region’s only “hub of hubs” providing for a combination of long term visioning and strategy mapping, civic-infrastructure development toward collective impact, and coordinated wide-scale response to pressing or emerging needs and opportunities for the region.

- Riverside County Non-Profit Roundtable
We are honored to participate in what we believe can be a game changing initiative for Riverside County. The Riverside County Non-Profit Roundtable has been created at the request of non-profit organizations (including Parkview Legacy Foundation), County Executive Staff, and County Supervisors to improve the connections and working relationships between the County and Community Based organizations, to begin with, in the distribution and implementation of 20 Million American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds being provided to Riverside County Non-Profits. More to come soon!
The obstacles affecting our community’s well-being are complex. They involve a multitude of interrelated systems of dysfunction; wealth inequality, an escalating housing crisis, the mental health crisis, unprecedented isolation, and inequitable educational attainment throughout communities and ethnic groups. Piecemealed, siloed, and competitive efforts remain the primary mode of operation throughout our community to create solutions. As a result, we are losing ground and failing to scale our solutions to address the need.
Addressing the root of the problems and meeting the most pressing needs requires collaboration, but more importantly, it requires that we move toward integrated solutions at both the conceptual and actionable level.
We are committed to start a movement in our community. Each social determinant of health must be addressed across all sectors: healthcare, education, transportation, community development, law enforcement, business. We will integrate parallel and lateral thinking into our problem solving, To this end, our differences are an asset. Rhetorical debate will be replaced by listening and curious exploration in a spirit of togetherness.
