COMMUNITY BUILDING & EMPOWERMENT

Together we get involved! We believe resident engagement and leadership are essential for communities to realize their vision for a vibrant and welcoming place for all to call home.  Community Development and Empowerment (CB&E) brings the talents, resources, and skills of people in a community together, increasing their collective capacity, and creating sustainable change.

Our Approach

Through engagement and empowerment, we collectively build healthy and stronger communities by:

Inspiring and supporting
