In compliance with the updated Howard County emergency ordinance, the Community Foundation office will be closed through Monday, April 20.
The Community Foundation of Howard County received a Planning Grant through the Lilly Endowment Inc. Giving Indiana Funds for Tomorrow Community Leadership Initiative.
This funding allowed the Foundation to evaluate our local landscapes and identify and prioritize community needs and assets, develop a deeper understanding of what our roles should be within the community, strengthen relationships with local stakeholders and potential collaborators, build internal capacities to act as an effective leader, and prioritize and develop strategies to address high-priority challenges and opportunities.
The Community Foundation did this by conducting 16 community conversations in Howard County to determine the emerging aspirations that citizens feel are important to the future well-being and growth of our community. The conversations revealed four aspirations: mentally healthy/drug-free, safe, economically healthy and culturally diverse.
Following the community conversations, the Foundation invited key service providers/experts to participate in a Taking Effective Community Action (TECA) Meeting related to each aspiration. The TECA approach is a part of the Harwood Method of turning outward to enable communities to become a collective force for change. During these meetings service providers were invited to share current programs and services being offered in the area of the specific aspiration and actions that would make a difference in the community.
The process also included a compilation of major community assessments throughout Howard County, as well as strategic community plans that were conducted within the last three years.
We invite you to use these finding as a way to learn more about your community and to create opportunities and actions through collaboration for positive impact.
