GPA reports on individuals and organizations telling the stories of those who are serving our community. As a result of these stories, they have identified 11 core groups working within their field of expertise. They refer to those as “Community Focus Groups.” The groups are: Community engagement, Education, Health, Homelessness, Housing, Hunger, Local Food, Neighborhoods, Poverty, Convict Re-entry, and Sustainability. The focus of GPA is to provide relevant content that can’t be found anywhere else, and building relationships with the people who care about our community.
