Connections and Leverage
Since our founding in late 2015, the KP Partnership has helped to bridge gaps in existing services by finding connections and leveraging available resources.
We have the ability to coordinate efforts that other groups don’t have the capacity or people-power to work on. This has resulted in thousands of dollars of funding, goods, and services coming to the Key Peninsula because we are able to inform our partners, pull together like-minded groups, and connect resources to those that can make use of them.
Our work is always done with a focus on the uniqueness of the Key Peninsula and with an eye (and ear) to the desires of the KP community. Our work is focused on a set of community-created visions developed in 2016 through a series of Community Visioning Forums.
Our goals are simple, yet profound, in their potential impact: to address immediate needs, to engage the community, and to create a long-term vision for a vibrant Key Peninsula.
We support efforts to feed the community, from creating connections between farms and kitchens to coordinating efforts between non-profit groups. Already, our Hunger Committee has connected several organizations to find innovative ways to increase how and when people get their meals.
Transportation on and around the KP can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be. Our Transportation Committee includes people from all levels of the Partnership and is committed to finding “out of the box” solutions and increasing transportation options on the Key Peninsula.
Health & Wellness
Access to health care, preventative medicine, mental health resources, and ways to exercise the body and soul – all of these are components to a healthy life. Identifying and creating ways to make these things more accessible to the KP Community is the goal of our Health & Wellness committee.
