What is your Cause? A Cause is a principle or idea that people believe in or work for because it needs to become a reality. A Cause is something to get behind because there is a problem that needs to be fixed or an injustice that needs to be rectified.
Serve United has identified 8 Causes to work on with community leaders in order to bring about a better reality across the greater Sacramento region. These Causes are described as “Community Health Characteristics” and were chosen after extensive research into county, city and school district descriptions of what their aspirations are for their communities. In other words, what does a thriving or good community look like? How do we describe such a place? What problems or issues are preventing this from happening? What are the activities that would bring about change to see the preferred outcomes be a reality?
In 2014 and 2015, we are in the process of drawing together Cause “Champions”- organizations and leaders who desire connection, cooperation and collaboration to go after these Causes. What’s your Cause? Follow your passion and let’s serve together to make the changes that will create healthy and good communities for every person in the greater Sacramento region.
