The Sultan Community Alliance (Alliance) is a multi-faceted entity that seeks to reduce homelessness in the community while providing volunteer opportunities to community members and services to at-risk youth. The Alliance strives to keep parks and public areas free from debris, and is engaged in efforts to “bring people back to Main Street,” through free events and activities that welcome youth, adults and families.
As of August 2017, the Sultan Community Alliance was designated as an official city agency, established by city ordinance and headed up by a mayor-appointed board of directors. Terms are for five years, with the initial appointments staggered for one to five years, to avoid multiple board positions expiring in the same year.

The Alliance regularly performs sweeps of local parks and public spaces to ensure that Sultan’s scenic areas remain walkable, family-friendly and free from rubbish. Since the Alliance was founded, volunteers have been an integral part of these cleanup efforts, removing many tons of trash from Sultan’s parks. Community members are always welcome to volunteer during a parks sweep and should contact the Alliance for additional information on how to participate.
The Sultan Community Alliance coordinates various large-scale community events each year. For information on how to get involved in the Alliance or to volunteer during a parks sweep or one of its community events, please contact the Alliance at: firstname.lastname@example.org
