Investing In Our Future

Align Southern Indiana

The Community Foundation of Southern Indiana has made a multi-year commitment to support the work of Align Southern Indiana (ASI). ASI is an umbrella organization working to facilitate a shared regional process that will align our resources, address our needs and produce sustainable solutions which will help our region become the best place to live, work and play. ASI is concentrating on five areas of focus including Economic & Talent Development, Education, Regional Leadership, Quality of Life and Quality of Place. Currently, ASI has two active teams working in the areas of 1) Kindergarten Readiness (Education Area of Focus: Ensuring every student is kindergarten ready) and 2) Addiction Prevention (Quality of Life Area of Focus: We will be a drug-free region). As the program grows, more teams will be added, aligning the right resources at the right time, working together to achieve agreed-upon community goals. To learn more about ASI or how you can get involved in helping drive coordinated, collaborative, systemic change for our region, visit the ASI website at: www.alignsi.com
