I got to know these terrific folks mentoring them in collaborative group dynamics through my Tools of Engagement. They are members of the Resident Council of Community Corporation Santa Monica – committed to leading their fellow residents in building strong, healthy, safe communities, while advocating for affordable housing locally and nationally.

We met over 6 months to build trust, define a Vision and Mission, recognize skills, strengths and challenges, initiate a structure to develop action plans, and build capacity for engaging the diverse residents living in the affordable housing units managed by CCSM. I am very excited to witness their coming pro active actions and outcomes that they will accomplish in the next year.
