Asset Based Community Development is a large and growing movement that considers local assets as the primary building blocks of sustainable community development. Building on the skills of local residents, the power of local associations, and the supportive functions of local institutions, asset-based community development draws upon existing community strengths to build stronger, more sustainable communities for the future.
Our knowledgeable presenter, Julie Filapek, who employs an ABCD approach to neighborhood development in the communities served by Goodwill NCW’s Neighborhood Partners program, will guide participants in an exploration of how to discover and mobilize their own community’s assets for the common good. This is some “must know” information for those who desire to facilitate neighborhood organizations in their community.
We all have a role to play in creating strong neighborhoods, strong communities and a strong region! Come join our “Gapper Network”, a growing system of professionals dedicated to supporting the work of engaged neighbors.
