About

We’ve learned that discomfort originates whenever a need goes unmet. But understanding the dynamics of needs-assessment data—then connecting the available resources to community priorities—can be a complex process. So in 2015, we created the Get Comfortable campaign to make serving simple: to align the business community to support those agencies doing the most to meet our city’s greatest needs.
