Pontiac is a community where everyone has equitable opportunities to thrive.
Together, with residents at the center, we are the individuals, families, businesses, and organizations of Pontiac working to lift up the voices of our diverse community to ensure all have the access, opportunities, and resources needed to thrive.
We work with the community and partner organizations, building trust, leveraging their wisdom and resources, to achieve shared objectives and to amplify our collective impact.
We respect differences in individuals and believe that we can harness the diversity of collective experiences, perspectives, and opinions for greater impact.
We seek effective, community driven solutions that address the root causes of existing systemic inequities and have measurable and sustainable outcomes.
We look for bold ideas and novel approaches.
We hold ourselves and our partners accountable to high standards of organizational integrity and responsible stewardship of resources entrusted to us.
