We help communities
activate people unleash possibilities inspire hope.

Traditional ways of solving social issues aren’t working anymore.

We believe when people experience belonging and meaning, real lasting change happens.

By building an active and engaged community, you can create a safer, healthier place to live.

When you partner with us, you get:

a proven roadmap to help you get to where you want to be.

access to up-to-date, practical processes.

expert coaching from start to finish.

connected to peer organizations and professionals who do what you do.

It’s time to unlock the human and economic potential of your community.

We help you activate the power of neighborhoods to create long-term, positive change.

Here’s how we do it:

1. Schedule a free discovery call.

On this call, we’ll get to know your community, learn your goals, and explore the paths to get you there.

2. Find your program.

Your community is unique, so everything we do is customized to your context for the best support possible.

3. Activate your community's potential.

An active, engaged community has the power to sustain the change you long for.

Since 2008, we’ve helped dozens of communities reverse deep-rooted social issues one neighborhood at a time.

Our organizations are relatively small with limited resources. CommunityWorks helped us build capacity in meaningful ways as we worked on targeted projects. We see great value in our partnership with them and are hopeful for what's next.

CommunityWork has a deep knowledge of how to affect change at a local level. They use their knowledge and platform to empower local community leaders right where they live. We are more knowledgeable and empowered after working with them.

Before CommunityWorks’ guidance, I had the resources I needed but struggled to fully grasp our residents’ needs and aspirations. Thanks to their support, I now have a better understanding of these aspects.
