The Halton Nonprofit Network (HNN) was mandated to bring nonprofits in the Halton area together to work on issues of common concern and to provide support to each other. The Network received an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant (2014-2016) that permitted it to further develop and deliver capacity-building supports to the sector in the Halton area.
HNN, an emerging collaborative, was formed in response to a series of initiatives in Halton (e.g. Funding Matters and the Chairman’s Roundtable on the Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector in Halton) that identified the need for a collective voice for the sector. The emergence of a shared vision and mission was an ongoing process as collaboratives develop, and people who were involved in the Network were motivated by the following vision and mission:
Vision: A vibrant, respected and sustainable nonprofit sector working for the public benefit in Halton that is characterized by effective coordination and impact.
Mission: Facilitating communication, coordination, collaboration, sharing and the coming together of the nonprofit sector in Halton around issues of mutual interest.
