- What We Do
We do this by offering programs and tools that engage diverse groups of residents in collaborative discussions and decision-making driven by what they love most about their town—its “heart and soul.” This deliberative work prepares citizens to steward change that upholds their shared community values, which serve as the foundation for future decisions.
Communities are at their best when all citizens have a say in their future, and when they experience the benefits of working together toward common goals grounded in their emotional attachment to a place. Our demonstration projects show that this approach touches real people, solves real problems, improves quality of life, and results in stronger communities. Each success contributes to our vision of building economically resilient and culturally vibrant towns across America.
