If It's For the Community, It's With the Community
The ThriveOn Collaboration is built on the premise that the way to serve and support our communities is to communicate, collaborate and embrace them as vital, essential partners. That’s why in 2019, the Collaboration began its journey by engaging with individuals in the Harambee, Halyard Park and Brewers Hill neighborhoods to help clarify our vision, shape our goals, and guide our actions. And throughout our process and progress, our connection with the community has been continuous and productive.
How we Connect
The Collaboration stays in touch with the views and values of the community through continuous dialogue and interaction with residents, organizations and other community leaders, which includes:
- Neighborhood Resident Visioning Sessions
- One-on-One Interviews
- Meet & Greets
- Community Festivals & Events
- Neighborhood Association Meetings
- Virtual and in-person office hours
We have also established a Community Advisory Council, which integrates community perspective and advises on the use of space and resources, including recommending grants in our communities.
With Office Hours session, visitors have the opportunity to chat with Community Engagement Fellow Zipporah (Z) Turnbull and learn information about neighborhood programs, resources and organizations in the ThriveOn King building.
