COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

Community DevelopmentQuin Rivers is concerned with integrating community development and human service strategies. Traditional anti-poverty efforts have separated the "bricks and mortar" projects from those that help families and individuals develop personal income and net worth, yet each approach needs the other to be successful. Quin Rivers uses "brick and mortar" projects to identify community strengths on which to build individual and family income and assets, which also builds income and retains capital within the community.

By forging partnerships through collaboration with local communities, community-based organizations and local government, Quin Rivers works to enhance community assets and build social capital, or the contacts and connections necessary to enhance personal opportunities for community residents.
