The OneCranston partnership is working to identify strategies that increase “social cohesion” in the city. A socially cohesive community is one where residents work to improve the well being of all community members, create a sense of belonging, and promote upward mobility for all residents.

The OneCranston partnership plans to work with residents to increase civic engagement and increase education and employment opportunities over the next decade, particularly among the city’s growing low income and minority communities. Partners are also interested in advancing strategies that increase understanding of and promote the city’s many community assets and cultural traditions.
