We are you

ASSIST Communities is a movement that fosters grassroots efforts to address local problems with local solutions. Many matters require communities to come together. Some matters need a force beyond any one group. We must become great ourselves by uniting to make it possible for us all to achieve the American Dream.

We are Ohioans and have a challenge in front of us. But we are more than capable of making a difference for the better. Let us continue...
