Asset Based Community Development

ROSE CDC uses an Asset Based Community Development approach to working with residents at our different housing properties. Resident Assets Coordinators work directly with residents from ROSE CDC properties to plan activities, support new ideas, raise money, and create programs. Our goal is to build up and support the assets that already exist in our community by working closely with residents to meet their needs. Resident Assets Coordinators also work with community volunteers and diverse partners to build a stronger community together! Would you join us in this great work?
