From Strengths To Solutions: An Asset-Based Approach to Meeting Community Needs In Brownsville

Citizens' Committee for Children of New York (CCC) released a new report, From Strengths to Solutions: An Asset-Based Approach to Meeting Community Needs in Brownsville. Over the past year, CCC engaged individuals living and working in Brownsville to better understand the needs of the community. Children and families in Brownsville have long faced poor outcomes. CCC wanted to find out what drives those poor outcomes, and what assets already exist in Brownsville that local leaders and community partners can build on to bring change to the community. The report outlines the challenges and opportunities in Brownsville and CCC's recommendations to build on the opportunities underway in the community.
