Resident leadership in resident communities
The goal of Community Builders is for residents to take a leadership role in the community, spearheading resident engagement for a one-year assignment. This program provides an opportunity for residents to get to know their neighbors and build lasting community with one another. Community Builders will engage other residents in organizing and participating in events and activities in their communities, advocate for community needs and suggestions, and collaborate with Home Forward staff.
The program could have lasting value in ways that:
❖ Help residents get to know each other
❖ Positively impact residents’ experiences
❖ Make communities thrive
❖ Engage communities in activities and events
❖ Help relieve stress
