Brenda speaking about the High Desert Partnership:
"“It is great to work in a team setting, there is more creativity and we can better support our partners. The biggest thing to me is that we have enough of a critical mass that gives our partners and community confidence that a collaborative process can be successful and allows for different voices to be heard. I love a win-win.”
