Your town is not just a place. It’s home.

Community Heart & Soul is a resident-driven model that creates lasting change in towns and small cities by engaging all residents to identify what matters most in their daily lives and what makes their town special…your town’s “Heart & Soul.” Moving forward, your town can reflect the people who live there — building trust, inspiring action, igniting economic development, and making better decisions together. Let us help your town find What Matters Most.

What We Do

Developed and field-tested over a decade in partnership with small cities and towns, Community Heart & Soul is a proven model for engaging a community in shaping its future.
By following this four phase, step-by-step model, residents are able to bring the community together to chart a course forward that recognizes the unique character of the place and the emotional connection of the people who live there.
