Vincent Delgado, Dr. Renee Canady, ANC Director Joan Nelson, and community members discuss the development of guiding values for the PWC.
|This power to create change comes from the network of regional relationships that are cultivated and sustained by the Power of We Consortium (PWC). The Consortium’s name, the Power of We, stems from its members’ beliefs – that what affects one person affects the entire community, that many of the community’s most vexing challenges are interrelated, and that by working together, positive change is achievable. Members of the PWC – including grassroots community organizations, faith communities, nonprofits addressing social issues, learning institutions, municipalities, and human services agencies – come together to mobilize the community’s assets to solve complex social problems. These problems typically affect more than a single sector, and controlling them is beyond the capacity, resources, or jurisdiction of any one person or organization. But by working together, the Power of We Consortium overcomes them. For more information about the Power of We Consortium, call Karika Parker at (517) 887-4691.|
