Community Development, just a reminder...

Community development (CD) is
a broad term given to the practices of civic activists, involved citizens and professionals to build stronger and more resilient local communities.
Community development seeks to empower individuals and groups of people by providing them with the skills they need to effect change in their own communities. These skills are often created through the formation of large social groups working for a common agenda. Community developers must understand both how to work with individuals and how to affect communities' positions within the context of larger social institutions. 

How are you investing and helping your local community?

I am so excited to be back in Richmond for the Holidays working with Hope Provided and other local business! Only a few short weeks left here in Chiang Mai Thailand!

Plans for Thanksgiving? How about taking some of those leftovers to local parks to share with your neighbors who don't have families to sit with? Or maybe organizing a Thanksgiving dinner with a local soap kitchen? All kinds of ideas!!
Please share with us your plans to give back this Holiday season, or email us for needs in your area you'd like to help with!
