Annually, we distribute 4,000 Making Connections to individuals and organizations that refer to it daily, as they connect those they serve with resources, often as basic as food, shelter, and clothing.

After four years of intense community engagement and conversation, the City of Fresno has brought forward the final draft of the General Plan.

After extensively reviewing the final draft, Metro is supporting this Plan.
