“I am certain you are all familiar with the expression ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.’ And, that is what NRHI is… a far greater catalyst than any one member could be.
Without NRHI our individual voices are weaker, lacking structure and focus. NRHI brings together its members, providing the important platform and organization for them to collaborate, to build consensus on areas of urgent need, and to lift our joint voices into the national stage so that all of our local efforts are multiplied and will make a lasting difference.”
