August Meeting--again at Integrity Life Church
Join us for our monthly meeting, August 5th from 2 - 4 pm. We will be learning about educational resources available to parents, so please, invite as many parents and communitymembers as you can to come and hear about these resources.
PLEASE NOTE: This month we will be meeting at Integrity Life Church, not the Library.
The Power of Connecting--More stories to share
We wanted to take a moment to share another recent story of how the connections made at City Vision are impacting local organizations.
Rose E. with the Federal Way Farmers Market attended our last meeting. Here is what she had to say about her experience.
"When I first walked in the door, I was very impressed by the number of people and the quality of the people in attendance. It was really rewarding to be able to hear everyone share about their Business and what their desires were for the community. I shared about our Federal Way Farmers Market and that we were in need of 2 employees. After the meeting Pastor Joe B. reached out to me and said he had someone in mind. We met with his Music Director and placed him on our team and he in turn found a second employee for us. I was so thrilled and blessed to of gone to this meeting and to meet such a dynamic group of people that have such a compassion for our community and want to help in any way they can. Thanks again for inviting me; I will be at the next one."
This is what we mean when we say we are "Connecting the dots".

What Is City Vision?
City Vision is an overarching organizational umbrella for resources and entities that wish to serve the people of Federal Way.
City Vision is a platform that provides means for different organizations to be brought together, mobilized, and encouraged to be a common voice for the good of Federal Way and its citizens.
City Vision is a place to network and build bridges of relationship and service, and encourage unity in our city.
City Vision is not a provider of services. It is a venue for:
- discovering resources and need,
- merging services and resources with need,
- building greater awareness of need and resources,
- bringing benefit to the community,
City Vision's council and board will steer and manage proposals and ideas, and offer advice to organizations. However, it will be the people (membership) who will drive projects and establish City Vision's collective voice.
How We Came To Be -
The City of Federal Way Human Services Division gave birth to City Vision through a World Café in March 2010.
The World Café listened to the concerns of our citizens, and began to form an organization that could respond to the needs in Federal Way.
We realized early on that we needed to be more than another faith-based community organization. We needed to engage all sectors of our city from the faith-based communities, human services providers, business sectors, civic organizations, city leadership, and community at large, if we were to make a difference in Federal Way. Our goal was to break down the barriers and silos presently isolating resources from need, and build a pathway for collaboratively connecting resources with need. We learned that there are many different resources available but not an easy way to connect to them.
And then City Vision came-to-be.
What City Vision Offers:
City Vision offers a common place for Service Organizations, Businesses, Faith Communities, Civic Clubs, and the community-at-large to work on issues collaboratively, breaking down silos and work together on common issues that will benefit our city.
City Vision is that place and the catalyst for change in our community for the common good.
We call it “connecting the dots”.
