South Wood County on National Stage!

The national spotlight shined on the people of south Wood County when Incourage CEO Kelly Ryan spoke at Rockefeller Foundation's Centennial Celebration of American Philanthropy. Kelly honored the work of residents like Kristi Anderson, Gus Mancuso and others during her speech in Washington, D.C. She was one of six speakers talking about their "Big Bets for the Next Century." For us, the "big bet" was on the people who live here. We bet on their ability to not only adapt to change, but to thrive, grow and lead change - stepping up, choosing hope, embracing change and modeling that behavior for others!

Incourage is committed to helping residents find and recreate the threads that weave together community. We believe that Community is the answer. Our residents’ spirit and ability to Care, be Compassionate and Connect are the driving forces of positive change. Read more »
