asset-based community development

Looking forward to an event we're bringing to First Pres' this month. We're partnering with my friend Brad Fieldhouse and the folks at Kingdom Causes to do an asset-based community development workshop. Should be good stuff for helping all of us in San Diego reach out to our perspective neighborhoods in authentic, empowering ways.

If you'd like to joins us, go here to sign up.

Asset-based community development offers just the look from upside-down that many communities need. Instead of working from the premise that communities have unmet needs and then concentrating on defining and bemoaning those needs all day, asset-based community development is a more empowering approach.

In ABCD, neighbors are encouraged to identify and concentrate on the potential building blocks and look at what you do have instead of what you don't have.
