Welcome to ABCD in Action!

ABCD in Action is your community - a place where we can learn from each other about how to apply the principles and practices of Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD).

"Building on the skills of local residents, the power of local associations, and the supportive functions of local institutions, asset-based community development draws upon existing community strengths to build stronger, more sustainable communities for the future.” ~http://www.abcdinstitute.org
