Our mission is to cultivate a collaborative community that supports, values and empowers youth. We do not operate any programs. We provide critical behind-the-scenes magic that allows our program partners to put their expertise and resources toward efforts that positively impact youth.
HCI has helped bring in more than $18 million in grant funds from outside the community to support efforts for local youth and families
More than 84 youth have been appointed to city boards and commissions through Youth First
Over 22,000 pounds of medications have been collected through the Take it To The Box program
Through the HCI-supported PRIMEtime collaborative, 1,398 youth participated in free afterschool and summer programming in 2015
Business leaders know how important it is for their employees to experience the best a community has to offer. HCI is dedicated to making the Rice County area – including Faribault, Northfield, and our surrounding rural communities – a place where current and future employees want to live, work, and raise their families. Thank you to our 2021 Business Champions for your financial support!
