Advancing the Common Good
Advancing the common good means creating opportunities for a better life for all. When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, and when people have good health. These results have benefits that ripple out to th community as a whole.
