Heart and Soul Method

Manning Heart and Soul is group of volunteers trained as part of the Orton Foundation Community Heart and Soul project. 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.

The Orton Foundation has worked with many small towns across the United States to bring together community members and provide them with the skills they need to initiate positive change in their communities. Volunteers like you can help lead the way for Manning's future. Get involved today and grow your skills while creating positive change!
