What We Do

Community Heart & Soul is a resident-driven process that engages the entire population of a town in identifying what they love most about their community, what future they want for it, and how to achieve it. Based on three powerful principles–involve everyone, focus on what matters most, and play the long game–Community Heart & Soul helps towns move toward a brighter, more prosperous future by bringing residents closer together.

“The Community Heart & Soul approach is both a process and a philosophy of getting everybody involved and then focusing on what’s really important. When you do that, you create plans that don’t sit on the shelf.”

Community Heart & Soul is unique in how it engages residents. It is a highly inclusive process that reaches deep into communities to ensure all voices are represented in determining a town’s future.
