The Pierce County Community Engagement Task Force uses an innovative community engagement framework to integrate services with a comprehensive, multi-faceted approach to foster economic mobility of Pierce County individuals and families.
We empower service providers to connect with service recipients with empathy and skill that provides transformational support done with dignity and respect.
The framework and purpose for reducing implicit bias in community engagement is based on the principles that respect the rights and voices of all community members by keeping them informed, consulted, involved, and empowered. Our areas of focus and plan for achieving them are as follows:
The purpose of the Leadership group is two-fold: The first priority is to support the three committees in working in alignment with the mission of the PCCETF to meet and sustain the outcomes of their individual goals in the community. The second is to guide the Council as a collaborative unit making the necessary adjustments needed to keep the development and overall operations and strategies of the task force moving forward.
