Organizations whose missions include offering programs and services which support local UA activities are essential for fostering community awareness and garnering participation.

Secondly, to identify obstacles which hinder these organizations from effectively carrying out their missions. Lastly to provide a tool box for planning purposes which will encourage the necessary involvement of municipal and institutional leadership.
