We work with community residents to identify and prioritize the challenges they experience, and utilizing local knowledge and strengths to develop solutions to overcome them.
Youth and Young Adult Program: We have a youth group and a young adults group, both aimed at promoting positive peer development and building leadership skills.
Community Action: We strive to bring residents together to engage in projects that benefit the entire community, such as advocacy projects and clean up days. We invite participation from all ages and welcome all the skills and gifts each resident is able to provide. Through this process we build unity, empowerment, and positive community identity.
