CII Community Opportunities Portal

Welcome to the  Community Opportunities PortalHere you'll find ways to get involved in this collaborative initiative to improve our community!

The purpose of the Community Integration Initiative (CII) is to reimagine a new human services system in collaboration with those who use county services and those who deliver them, building on the work DHS and community providers already do to combat poverty and inequities.

The catalyst of this multi-year initiative led by the county and DHS is the RASE Commission Report. TogetherNow will assist with facilitation.
