The Mission of Community Thread is to support, promote, and encourage volunteerism to serve the needs of the community. Through direct and indirect services we impact issues of poverty, volunteer management, and senior involvement and isolation. We sustain volunteerism by connecting people and enriching lives. We believe every act of service is a thread that ties people, lives, and communities together.

Each year, Community Thread helps more than 17,000 people in the greater St. Croix Valley through six core programs: The Volunteer Center, Stillwater and Bayport Senior Centers, Neighborhood Service Exchange, Transportation Program, Holiday Bureau, and the Medical Reserve Corps. We make our region a better place to live by offering a variety of volunteer-driven programs such as senior health and wellness, transportation to doctor appointments, help with household chores and tax returns, emergency preparedness and flu shot clinics, and connections to volunteer opportunities. The common denominator for Community Thread is that the cumulative impact of our programs results in stronger, healthier, safer, and more connected communities.
In 2010 and beyond, Community Thread will maintain the current level of programs and services, including responding to the increased demand for services. In the fall of 2010 the Community Thread Board of Directors will undertake a strategic planning process to determine and incorporate organizational priorites into daily operations. Community Thread will continue to connect people and enrich lives through our mission of promoting, supporting, and encouraging volunteerism to serve the needs of the community.
