|A resilient neighborhood is one where neighbors know and trust one another, and have found ways to share and help each other in both good and hard times.|
Our "Resilient Neighborhoods" program, rather than being a single approach, is a collection of tried and true methods for building resilience on your block.
There is no one right way to achieve the community and resourcefulness that characterizes a truly resilient neighborhood. The most important thing is that you start!
The "Leaders' Packet" link in the box at left is a good starting place. "Main Programs" provides how-to guides for three of our favorite resilience-building strategies. The other links are self-explanatory.
Transition Santa Cruz would like to support your efforts. Contact us if you would like some encouragement, someone to walk the block with you, or to find out about our Neighborhood Leaders' Trainings, offered periodically.
