In dealing with the missional statement of the better way foundation, at the core of all that we strive to be is the burden of service. While there are a vast number of non-profit and 501C3 foundations in the vicinity of Martinsville & Henry County our elusive nature is driven by a burden to commitment. Our commitment is trifold in that we are committed firstly, to individuals. Those who are impacted most my the every changing variables of life’s circumstances. We strive to aid individuals with resources and opportunities that open the door for better living and possibility. The secondary commitment is a direct result of the first, we are committed to households in that by aiding individuals we create better households. Thus leading to our third and final commitment which is communities, the more of an impact we are able to make on individuals the more we are able to impact households which results in better communities. This is our mission and our mandate to those who don’t see a way, we are the better way.
