A strong nation is built upon the foundation of strong communities. Healthy, resilient communities provide their residents with safety, stability, possibility, and purpose. They shelter, educate, heal, and employ. In turn, a community can only be as strong as its weakest links. Issues such as unemployment, homelessness, and crime and recidivism, to name a few, slowly whittle away a community’s fortitude, leaving its residents prone to the misfortunes that befall the unprotected.
