The Miami Valley Leadership Foundation is about serving through connection.

Our Mission

We best serve our community by connecting, unifying and mobilizing people of faith and people of goodwill through family and workforce mentoring and community collaboration. In other words, we believe if we connect the right people to the right resources and the right organizations, doors will be opened for God to move.

Our Vision

We dream of the day when Hope4Communities are actively engaged throughout the Miami Valley.  A day when youth & families are growing through mentorship and contributing to their communities because of an innate desire to pay it forward.

The International Leadership Foundation

We are not alone. Dayton is one of 74 Leadership Foundations cities. There are 3,090 Community-based and institutional partners in the network, including ours, with 13,000+ volunteers.  Collectively, we serve 255,000+ people each year!
