HMIS Community Commitment Plan

A Community of One

HMIS is a team of trusted partners offering integrated and sustainable solutions – not just at Hanford – but across our community. We are committed to meaningful and sustainable partnerships that demonstrate our commitment to a community of one. Our objective is to understand and improve the changing landscape surrounding regional educational outreach programs, challenges facing small businesses and economic diversification.

It’s About the Impact

Over ten years, the HMIS Board of Directors will invest $10 million as part of our community commitment plan. We will focus on improving education, supporting the local small business community, economic development and enhancing quality of life. Our plan will support community organizations and initiatives that include both financial contributions and in-kind services. Some of the highlights our community can look forward to are:

  • Investments in STEM education
  • Awarding up to $500,000 in scholarships
  • Employee development efforts
  • Regional purchasing programs to assist small businesses
  • Continuation of the successful Connect Tri-Cities event
  • Charitable donations to local non-profits
  • A dynamic employee volunteerism program

Creating a Culture of Giving

The health and well-being of our community is vital to Hanford employees and their families. Charitable giving is an opportunity for HMIS to make a meaningful impact. Combined with our employee volunteerism program, HMIS Family, we have created a company-wide culture of giving that spreads beyond our workforce and positively affects our entire community.

Our investments will target organizations and programs that support education and leadership development for youth, economic development and improving local quality of life for those in need, all for the benefit of our entire region.
