Community Building

Our community building efforts are rooted in fostering connections, collaborations, and a sense of belonging. We focus on creating a cross-sector environment where individuals can come together to discuss challenges and solutions. 

We primarily implement our efforts through Community of Practice events. These events provide a platform for connecting with partners, gaining insight, and finding inspiration and motivation to take impactful steps in creating a more just and healthy Montgomery County. 

Our goals are to:

  • Bring together diverse community members to deepen understanding about community issues and the importance of strengthening the network of organizations collectively working on solutions 
  • Connect on topics at the forefront of our minds that are important to our work
  • Create space for participants to think critically about how they personally & organizationally can contribute 
  • Provide a hopeful, energy-giving experience for participants
