We provide a collective voice and forum for advocacy and education of non-profits in Mesa County
The newly formed (2015) Community Impact Council is a merger between the long-standing Human Services Council (HSC) and the newer Community Impact Network (CIN).
Our Mission: To provide a collective voice and forum for advocacy and education of non-profits in Mesa County.
Our Vision: Ensure the sustainability and positive impact of non-profits in Mesa County through education, advocacy and collaboration.
Our Goals: Developing connections between agencies and the community at large through:
- Education and training
- Collaboration and networking
- Advocacy and sustainability
The Community Impact Council encourages partnerships with a broad coalition that fosters collaborations among organizations providing services and education in Mesa County and those business and governmental organizations that support them:
- Participate in a unique forum to network with other community organizations on projects, events and funding opportunities.
- Access to venues and tools to update other agencies on new programs, events, and changes.
- Receive information pertinent to creating effective programs, organizational efficiencies, and better policies and procedures.
The Community Impact Council is proud to build on the foundation of the Human Services Council and excited to explore new opportunities in our community for the local non-profit sector.
Mesa County Non-Profits Survey City Council Candidates
The Community Impact Council (CIC) of Mesa County has gathered survey responses from the Grand Junction City Council candidates regarding their knowledge of local community issues and the many nonprofits in the region who work to solve those issues.
These questions were generated by the over 45 nonprofit agencies who are members of CIC in Mesa County.
“This survey provides a unique opportunity for candidates to share their views on the impact our nonprofits have in the Valley’, said Janet Rowland, Executive Director of CASA. “This survey is meant to inform our member organizations, their volunteers, and the general public, how the candidates value and understand the important work of non-profits in Mesa County.”
Doug Sorter, Development Vice-President with STRIVE, added “When you add up the contribution our CIC non-profit members provide to the community and look at the sheer number of engaged professionals in our sector, it’s quite clear, that this candidate survey provides an important opportunity for the candidates to hear from, and communicate to, an influential and valuable part of our community.”
The over 45 non-profit members of the CIC represent many diverse constituencies and community members in Mesa County. With members ranging from Saint Mary’s Hospital to Colorado Canyons Association, the CIC represents over 4,500 employees in Mesa County. “From the human services to outdoor education nonprofits, CIC boasts an extremely broad and far-reaching representation of local organizations doing essential work in our community. This effort provides valuable resources and a strong voice for our collection of organizations, I am excited about the support shown for our work by the Grand Junction City Council members,” says Joe Neuhof Executive Director of Colorado Canyons Association. Information about CIC and member organizations is available at our website, www.communityimpactcouncil.org
