Community wellbeing is a goal, demanding acceptance, and a willingness to work collaboratively to find solutions to the myriad of issues and problems that confront us a people.  Fixing issues and problems is a process of organized people intent on achieving new goals that define how people should and can live near one another.  This short manuscript is a thoughtful journey, where information sparks thinking, and that, in turn, leads you to engage in determining solutions

The books displayed are practical, hands-on, and meant to guide organizations in addressing issues and problems, resulting in sustainable solutions.  Repeat, but unsuccessful attempts to bring about solutions is costly and discouraging to those who experience a diminished quality of life.

Working from a collaborative model with community members and stakeholders is a powerful concept, not fully understood or implemented; which reduces the potential impact.  We address these concepts from a collaborative partnership perspective; because it works.
