Who We Are
Lake County United is an independent, non-partisan organization made up of churches, synagogues, mosques, civic and non-profit institutions from across Lake County. We have joined together across religious, geographic, racial, economic, and political lines fight for the common good on issues of shared concern.
Our Mission: Members of Lake County United work as agents for change on issues that most impact the people of Lake County.
We do this by:
- Building relationships across Lake County
- Identifying and developing leaders
- Researching solutions
- Creating opportunities for leaders to ACT as a united power for human dignity, social justice and the greater good.
As a broad based citizens organization we build relationships across Lake County, identify community concerns and needs and work together as a united power for human dignity, social justice and the greater good. In particular we encourage conversation across religious, ethnic, economic, generational, and political lines believing that it is possible to create a shared vision for the county. And we are realists about power: The ability to translate the hopes and interests of our members into action and results.
Founded in 2003, Lake County United is an affiliate of the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), the oldest and largest network of community organizations in the U.S.
