Lisa shares the story of how Ohio City Power collaborates to serve regional organizations, amplify resource access, strengthen community and network reach to turbo charge human success stories.
Tom talks about what Neighborhood Connections is, it's legacy and how since 2003, the organization has invested in community-based projects that build relationships in neighborhoods and across Northeast Ohio. Tom also explains how the citizen-lead Neighborhood Connections funding process works.
