Affordable workforce housing and strengthening our local food system are recent longer-term efforts that the Goosefoot board and staff are engaged in. We are also actively working towards becoming an anti-racist organization, learning how to better support our community’s diversity and adjusting our programs to make them more equitable and accessible.
