Thanks to the vision and initial investment of the Homer and Mildred Scott Foundation, the Center for a Vital Community began in 2001. The foundation’s trustees found a home for the CVC at Sheridan College where the trustees envisioned the Center offering information collection, leadership development, and facilitation.
The CVC remains a neutral convener for community issues and moves forward critical initiatives.
Its flagship program, the Sheridan CiViC Leadership Project, has graduated nearly 125 Sheridan County residents who have shared language and experiences. These translate into common values and visions for our area.
The health and success of our local non-profits continues to be a focus of the CVC’s work as well as youth leadership and on-going partnerships with other community entities.
