Jeff Mills

“Community is not automatic, and it is not automatically optimal. We cannot take it for granted; we cannot assume that it is what it should be; we cannot stand on the sidelines and just hope that things work out.”

—Paul Born, President, Tamarack Institute & author of Deepening Community: Finding Joy Together in Chaotic Times

“There is nothing extraordinary about Asset Based Community Development (ABCD). It’s as ordinary as looking out for your family, your neighbours, your environment. Or extending a hand to people who are down on their luck, struggling or vulnerable. Or banding together with others to fix a common challenge.”

—Al Etmanski, ABCD Faculty, author,community activist, and social entrepreneur
