Neighborhood Outreach works to increase community equity through community engagement, partnership development, and helping shape policy. We work collaboratively across the region to strengthen neighborhoods, reduce displacement, and expand opportunities and services.

OneAdams was created to help build connections with neighbors from a distance.
Neighborhood Connections is Adams County’s resident engagement platform and encourages residents to live, play, and explore.

Adams County Foundation
Vision: Strengthen our community by providing equitable opportunities to all Adams County residents, through our collaborations and support of local non-profits.
Mission: Provide equitable opportunities for all.
- Integrity: We value transparency and accountability in ourselves and our partners, to uphold public trust and our obligations to the community.
- Access: We believe in the right to succeed by ensuring access to opportunity, transportation, shelter, health, food etc., to the residents of Adams County.
- Dignity: All people have the right to be treated with dignity and respect.
- Equity: Every resident has the opportunity to thrive.
- Innovation: Through innovation we will create a better tomorrow.
- Collaboration: We work better together.
- Inclusion: To serve our community while maintaining dignity and respect of all residents.
Scope: Our working board is made up of seven appointed volunteer residents in Adams County who are passionate about their community and are dedicated to increasing community capacity for supportive programming. The development of this foundation allowed the Board of County Commissioners to develop an efficient and streamlined way for non-profits to access grant funding and develop strategic partnerships. The ACF board members are tasked to identify the current needs and trends in our community and ensure that funding is dispersed to local non-profits. Our Foundation continues its commune mission by engaging philanthropic partners, leveraging funding, fundraising, and investing in successful programming that yields more opportunities for the community in the future. This current strategic plan demonstrates how the current ACF board plans to continue its important work while also setting a course for the future and sustainability of the ACF.
