The Participation Project reaches individuals who are often missed and do not always have a voice at the table. 2020 was no different. Our partner human service nonprofits were on the frontlines ensuring communities received the essential services they need despite the pandemic. While shops and businesses closed down, our partners — food pantries, community health clinics, homeless shelters, and COVID-19 protective housing sites — remained open and experienced an increased demand for their services. Across the state, nonprofits were ready to engage their communities and participants in civic life, committing time and resources to building a more just future for all.
