Our Mission / News
CSDF acts to identify, cultivate, and convene community-focused stakeholders to connect spheres of influence and promote a shared vision for our community. We believe that a healthy community requires an inclusive climate built on a foundation of trust and respect for individual assets, talents, and perspectives. Diversity and inclusion add significant value to our organizations and community by maximizing everyone’s contribution to a shared quality of life. We serve both as an information repository and as a communication and education resource.
Your voice IS our voice!
