WHO IS STRONGERTOGETHERNOW?

We are a 501(c)3 community outreach organization that aims to improve connectedness and provide resources for the people of the Inland Empire. Our main purpose is to enable, educate & empower.   


OUR FOCUS:
1. Community Outreach & Engagement

2. Youth Enablement

3. People Empowerment 
4. Mutual Aid & Resources
5. Local Leadership Accountability

OUR GOALS:

- Create a volunteer/current event app specifically for nonprofit and service organizations of the IE. 

- Have community-centered hubs to collectively serve, connect and educate individuals on items specific to local needs. 

- Events: City Clean up (weekly), Book Drives (quarterly), Community Drive with Vendors (monthly), & Parks Restoration (ongoing).

OUR PURPOSE:  

We work collectively to provide resources that support the community as a whole. ​ We highlight social injustice and the need for local, positive change.  We create a sense of community, not division. We demand change at local levels and influence local leadership.  

The events we organize are possible through donation-based community outreach and revenue-generating arms of our social entrepreneurship model.  Our goal is to serve as a bridge in the IE by collaborating with local organizations, leadership & people to provide a more collective and efficient approach. The altruistic nature of our work drives our intention.  We are the connected piece, the cogwheel. 

OUR MISSION: 

To help underserved communities in the IE by providing access to programs, organizations, resources and events. 

We are donation-based and a nonprofit organization, so we do need help raising funds, volunteering or supplying resources to the underserved of the IE.  This allows us to meet community needs as a collective. 

We are in the business of making bridges, not burning them. Our secret sauce is relationship-building. We are connectologists who foster creativity and vision. 

Since we encourage open dialogue and partnership, our business model is one that runs efficiently without a need to reinvent the wheel, instead we improve outdated models and approaches with a joint effort to ensure its success.  We encourage visionary-thinking, with solution-oriented focus and action items. 


We dispel the notion that one cannot thrive and is unable. We are enablers.  We help others to find their own strength and purpose, by reminding them of their part in the greater whole.

Are you interested in being stronger together?  There are many ways you can support our mission.

In partnering with Music Changing Lives on this incredible project, we were honored to help beautify local basketball courts in parks that were neglected for years. Our goal was to bring community together! We achieved this goal by encouraging community to help us paint.  We recruited local artist, Chris Becktel, who wowed everyone with his amazing work! We also hired contractor, JoAnn Albiso Construction Managment to renovate the courts.
It was the collective effort of everyone involved that made this project an absolute success! Thank you City of Redlands for all your support and covering paint costs for the SpreadPaintNotHate initiative!

On the heels of COVID we created the Kids Sports Bubble in February 2021 to allow kids a space to play without fear or anxiety.  We did this by testing them weekly to ensure they were COVID-clear, and a asymptomatic.  Home test kits were provided through SB County.  Activities were provided with the help of many organizations and volunteers to ensure their health and wellness was a priority.  Parents felt an extra later of reassurance as kids played again together in an outdoor space, building confidence and trust once again. We continue the program even as restrictions have lifted.  The kids are part of our team & our team is family. 

Activities include: sports (basketball, soccer, flag football), art/crafts (swords&shields, Tye dye t-shirts), rock art scavenger hunts, laser tag, water balloon fights, self defense, bikes/scooters/skate day, & guided interactive tools for healthy approaches & behaviors.

We do not currently have an active program at this time.
