Strong Neighborhoods & Communities

To help build strong neighborhoods & communities, we focus on community engagement and capacity building to help build relationships and social capital, to give a voice and opportunities for service and leadership, to foster a sense of belonging and ownership, and to build skills and capacity in both individuals and groups.

Initiatives that work to prevent homelessness and ensure safe, affordable housing, to prevent child abuse and neglect and reduce poverty, to ensure clean air and water, to prevent crime, substance use and violence and to increase access to quality, affordable child care and preschool programs are key to strengthening our neighborhoods and communities and the residents who live there. These initiatives engage the community and facilitate positive change that leads to long-term, measurable outcomes.

Some of our resources and programming to help build strong neighborhoods & communities include:
