Collaborative Solutions for Washington County 

Vision Action Network (VAN) is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that convenes and facilitates "cross-sector collaboration" to address critical issues in Washington County, Oregon. Combining the strengths of public, private, nonprofit and faith-based communities, we can achieve far greater outcomes than by working at cross-purposes or in isolation from one another.  We are better together! 

Take a look at our latest event:

By bringing together a broad array of community partners to tackle ongoing and emergent issues – such as health care access, affordable housing, economic security, diversity, education and sustainability – we intend to make fundamental changes in the civic structure and health of our community, and move toward a more vital and sustainable community for all Washington County residents.

Our MISSION is to identify critical issues and support collaborative community-based solutions.  We work across sectors – government, nonprofit, education, business and faith – to accomplish our mission.  Part of our work involves promoting and supporting relationship-building, partnerships and collaboration to ensure solutions are sustainable and that the culture of working together in Washington County thrives.
