As the umbrella, Decade to Doorways implements and oversees the Operational Plan through the coordination of problem solving work groups known as action teams. These teams are attended by approximately 200 strategically sought out volunteer community members. Each team is chaired by respected and reputable leaders in Chester County, acting as ambassadors for the community plan.
