The J. Marion Sims Foundation is partnering with the Orton Family Foundation to share the Community Heart & Soul ® method as part of its ongoing commitment to lift up and empower community voices to support a healthy community. The Foundation intends to deepen dialogue within our communities, so as to strengthen and support the kind of collaboration that builds capacity in our towns and cities. With the insights gained through this and other community engagement processes, the Foundation will use community data and indicators to make decisions, measure progress, and illuminate issues that are important to those who live, learn, work, or play here.
