Involve Residents to Guide Decisions with Community Heart & Soul®

Community Heart & Soul gives municipal leaders a true representation of what matters most to their constituents. The information gathered through the process guides decision-making and priorities for the long-term.

Small cities and towns that work with us experience a range of benefits including:

  • Strengthened relationships with residents and increased resident participation
  • Increased volunteerism and resident-driven community actions
  • Deepened understanding by municipal officials of community needs to inform long-range plans
  • Measurable impact toward community and economic development goals
  • Increased investment from grants and the private sector to implement community projects
