Our approach

My Arms Wide Open is focused on five program areas that will help the people and communities we serve, realize their potential. Our work is led by the communities we serve. Every project begins with listening – we ask people to identify the obstacles and opportunities. Then we apply our knowledge, networks and entrepreneurial know-how to enable community members to collaborate and become agents of change.
