Come find out how you can be part of the city’s Community Heart & Soul initiative. The program kicked off in mid-April and is now moving into the second phase, Explore Your Community. To help gather residents’ stories and build relationships across divides, the organization is hosting small, community-driven events such as Thirsty Thursday Topics and Rock the Block cook-outs. These community driven events will help organizers better understand the needs of the city.

Community Heart & Soul is a proven process that actively seeks the collective wisdom of all residents, including those whose voices are missing and brings people together to build stronger, healthier, and more economically vibrant communities. This resident-driven model takes into account both the unique character of a town and the deep emotional connection of the people who live there – a town’s “Heart & Soul®.” For more information on the Community Heart & Soul process, visit orton.org.
