    ASSET-BASED COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT, COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AND MOBILIZATION

    ABCD in Action is your community - a community of members from around the world, where we can explore together how to apply the principles and practices of Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD). All are welcome!

    "Building on the skills of local residents, the power of local associations, and the supportive functions of local institutions, asset-based community development draws upon existing community strengths to build stronger, more sustainable communities for the future.” ~http://www.abcdinstitute.org
