Community Building, Strengthening Sense of Community

Community Building, Strengthening Sense of Community     

A sense of community is an intangible yet vital component of a healthy community. It encompasses elements such as image, spirit, character and pride, along with processes such as communication, inter?group relations, and networking. In many communities across the nation, people are losing their sense of community. With current trends of out migration, sprawl, rural?flight, urban decay, and increased mobility, many community members do not feel strongly connected to their communities.
