The Community Wealth Building Program has been quite busy this season offering workshops, showcasing local businesses, and surveying resident skills and talents and connecting residents to one another.
For the past 1.5 years Walnut Way and other community organizations in Milwaukee’s Lindsay Heights neighborhood have been implementing a resident centered, neighborhood focused development strategy called Community Wealth Building (CWB). CWB addresses the missing piece of many local economic development efforts: the skills, talents and gifts of residents – in other words their assets. This is where we start.
We invite you to take a look at the CWB 2021 Winter Status Report to see all of the accomplishments and growth throughout this season.
