Collaborative Solutions for Washington County 

The Vision Action Network (VAN) is a private nonprofit organization committed to the promotion and support of collaborative community-based problem solving. We believe strongly that we can be more successful working together than we can working alone.

By bringing together a broad array of community partners to tackle ongoing and emergent issues – such as health care access, affordable housing, economic security, diversity, education and sustainability – we intend to make fundamental changes in the civic structure and health of our community, and move toward a more vital and sustainable community for all Washington County residents.

Our MISSION is to identify critical issues and support collaborative community-based solutions.  We work across sectors – government, nonprofit, education, business and faith – to accomplish our mission.  Part of our work involves promoting and supporting relationship-building, partnerships and collaboration to ensure solutions are sustainable and that the culture of working together in Washington County thrives.
