Only when we work together can we improve the health of our communities. By tapping into and increasing the community’s capacity for identifying and addressing significant health-related issues, we continue to leverage assets and networks.

The most effective and positive changes are accomplished through partnerships and collaborations with other organizations focused on common goals. Rarely does one organization have the perspective to see all aspects of how complex prob-lems affect people and very few organizations have the time, money and people to address all aspects of a problem.

Each year the Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona Board identifies a strategic focus and encourages community organizations providing services within that focus to apply for funding. Because partnerships are so critical to success, organizations are encouraged to submit applications that reflect collaboration with other organizations
