Helping America’s Rural Communities Envision A Positive Future
Rural towns across America have the most challenges when it comes to growing, retaining residents and improving economic development. That is why Winning Communities focuses on helping these smaller towns, counties and villages — helping them emphasize their assets, while recognizing their challenges and opportunities.
Why do rural communities need to develop a vision and action plan for achievement?
Although smaller communities may not have the assets or resources of a larger, urban community, we at Winning Communities have found that its citizens and leaders have a lot of heart. They care about the future of the community, and want to see it succeed and grow. All communities, particularly the smaller communities with the challenge of maintaining population, cultural and social opportunities and more, need to develop a vision for how they can harness the collective power of the community to make it the best it can be.
