Ownership & Community

These sessions focus on inspiring approaches for building social capital and connections in low-income or mixed-income communities. The quality of life and the stability of apartment complexes, neighborhoods, and manufactured housing communities can all be greatly enhanced with strategies that help people working together. These sessions will feature examples of “Communities of Hope” in Detroit, Manufactured Housing Communities in Minnesota and other examples that show how to help people thrive by working together.
