Mission
 

Cultivate Neighborhood Democracies.

Key Strategies

CTC uses place-based organizing strategies and a public health framework we call “Just C.H.A.N.G.E” in which collaborative, interconnected community work groups share knowledge and resources, develop and implement strategies to address neighborhood interests in the areas of Community Education, Health, Arts & Culture, NextGen (Youth and Young Adults), Growth (Land & Housing & Opportunity) and Environment.

 

Our engagement includes a diverse consortium of residents, organizations, partners, and funders.
