Community Capacity Building
Through our complete capital model, we mobilize human, intellectual, social and financial capital to improve communities.
We define community revitalization as the improvement of both geographic place and its people. Without placing people at the foundation of our work, we would be creating bricks and mortar, technical solutions to complicated long-term social problems. Our purpose in building community capacity is for residents to move upward with the economic development of their community.
Our capacity building serves all CDBG-eligible communities in the City of Pittsburgh and aligns with the elements of healthy neighborhoods, contributing to the elements that build effective neighborhoods.
Elevate the role of residents by building the skills and know-how of new and current resident actors in creating equitable community revitalization through providing skill and awareness-building opportunities.
Build awareness within organizations and equip staff to respond to effectively to community concerns, share knowledge and skills, and collaborate for impact.
Expand existing networks, build and support new networks, foster collaborations within and across neighborhoods and create shared service capacity to organizations.
Research, collect, identify, and share resources — toolkits, information, workshops, trainings, consultants — in community development for residents, organizations, and networks.
