The Community Wealth Building Campaign at Walnut Way is rooted in an asset-based approach to resident wealth creation in the Lindsay Heights neighborhood.  It focuses on cultivating neighbors’ skills and gifts, what people have, versus deficits and needs. Neighbors are given opportunities to identify and develop their skills and interests, start or grow a businesses and help each other along the way. Driven by neighborhood leaders, the Campaign provides a structure for residents to learn from each other as well as experts in fields that interest them. Some of these have included cooking/catering, home improvement, beauty and hair, landscaping, home care and others.
