Workbook Focuses on Community Connections
The Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) Institute is built upon three decades of community development research. Their newest publication, “Discovering Community Power: A Guide to Mobilizing Local Assets and your Organization’s Capacity,” is a community building workbook – and is available now! The workbook affirms that nonprofit organizations are much more powerful community actors when they are not exclusively focused on needs, problems and deficiencies but are effectively connected to the resources, or assets of the local community. The workbook may be downloaded at no cost from http://www.northwestern.edu/ipr/abcd.html.
