The Tri-Valley Nonprofit Alliance (TVNPA) and The Tri-Valley Anti-Poverty Collaborative (TVAPC) are pleased to announce a formal partnership to promote and collaborate on the mutual interests and values of both organizations. TVNPA president and co-founder Kathy Young will serve on the TVAPC Steering Committee, providing a bridge between these rapidly growing and impactful organizations. Both organizations embody core values to unite people and institutions in order to serve the greatest needs of the Tri-Valley region and East Bay.
Each group was founded in 2014 by concerned individuals in the community who were inspired to improve the health and welfare of Tri-Valley residents and causes by connecting and strengthening the many organizations that serve them throughout the region.

Monthly meetings are free of charge to attendees and cover a wide range of best practices regarding nonprofit funding, operations, communications, social media, and more.
The Tri-Valley Anti-Poverty Collaborative was formed to address the issues of hidden poverty of people affected by the underlying causes of suburban poverty in the Tri-Valley. The TVAPC is a cross-sector partnership between individuals working in governments, schools, non-profit organizations, faith-based groups, philanthropic organizations, residents, and members of the business community to address issues related to suburban poverty. Over the past year, the Anti-Poverty Collaborative has focused on housing, health, and education. Outreach activities have included: promoting Tri-Valley health fairs and educational activity for young children; holding forums related to the A1 Housing Bond; and convening community listening sessions.
