Each month, Johnson Service Corps will feature one of our Partner Organizations. For March, we are excited to share information about Resourceful Communities.
We help strengthen community organizations through capacity building, support on-the-ground projects through small grants, and nurture a growing network of grassroots partners and resource providers. Our effective combination of direct support, skills building, and connections to resources nurtures real change where it’s needed the most.
Using our three program strategies—free-of-charge capacity building, direct support, and networking—Resourceful Communities helps community organizations implement triple-bottom-line projects. We support a wide range of efforts: ecotourism, alternative energy, youth leadership development and more. Three targeted initiatives (Faith & Food; Food & Farm; and Healthy Eating, Active Living) also advance food-related efforts.
Corps Member Celeste Carpenter works with the Faith & Food initiative, which is a joint project of Resourceful Communities and The Duke Endowment.
