Nonprofit organizations play a vital role in building healthy communities by providing critical services that contribute to economic stability and mobility. They also strengthen communities in other important ways. Frequently, nonprofit leaders are the voice of the people they serve. Thanks to the combination of strong community relationships and intimate local knowledge, these organizations often understand better than anyone else their communities’ needs and the best ways to meet them. Strong, well-resourced nonprofits that are connected to the decision-making infrastructure in their communities can catalyze growth and opportunity.
We are trying build a network of people who are willing to help. So when we find a need in our community, we can email everyone in the network and as a group we can solve the problem and help the person in need. Contact us using the form below if you’d like to be involved.
Studies show that children who feel a sense of identity within a group are the most well adjusted and successful in school and with their “world view” — that is, understanding the relationship between self and others.
Studies also reveal that some of the most important skills children need for success are social interaction, communication, collaboration and problem solving, all of which a sense of community can foster.
How many of you, when you were a child, had someone do or say something to you that made such an impact on you that it shaped the person you are today?
I believe that if everyone reading this were to really think back on their childhood, they would remember someone that did just that, someone who helped to shape the person you are.
We created The Community Mindset to do just that.
