Institute Faculty

As a first priority, the Institute has responded to the many calls by community organizations requesting speeches, workshops, and consultations by establishing the ABCD faculty and later, the ABCD fellows. These highly skilled leaders come from foundations, community groups, United Ways, churches, universities, consulting groups and health organizations in the United States and Canada. They have worked with more than 200 organizations, helping them with their asset-based community development projects. Some of the many issues and groups they've worked with include: Healthy Communities, community mapping, welfare reform, youth, people with disabilities, institution/community relations, and families and children. They've addressed church groups, policymakers, community groups, educators, social service providers, hospitals, foundations and leadership groups. ​
