Nothing is possible without the support of the community.

Thank you to our partners for the support you provide to the community!

We need to establish better relationships with our local leaders and community members to create the environment we seek. This is important to establish “a seat at the table.” It determines the quality of education, food, air, and value of services and offerings in the neighborhood. Feel empowered and advocate for your community today!

ASCENDtials wants to thank all those partners and contributions to improving the lives of everyone within my community! May we all thrive! Thank you! To partner with us, contact us today!
