Communities First Association
AmeriCorps National Direct FY 2011(New)
Asset based community development is a development process focused on learning and utilizing the gifts within a community to strengthen it. By listening to the neighbors, learning their gifts, and the local issues that neighbors care enough to act on, our AmeriCorps Members are able to act as catalysts in their respective neighborhoods, spurring on community development. Members listen, connect, and step back so that the neighborhood can work together to address their problems.
