Community Connections program creates deep and sustainable partnerships that aim to improve the quality of life for people of color, immigrant, and low-income communities through transformative approaches and experiences.

What we do

Community Connections funds multi-year partnerships with trusted organizations and leaders that serve a variety of ethnic and language groups.
Partners receive paid training on the utility and hazardous waste. They adapt and deliver in-language presentations and activities to communities. Partners also gather community input for SPU to improve our services and approach.
