Insider Tips for Real Estate Investors

By Carlisle Mitchell | Real Estate Pro in Houston, TX

Community Development

Community development, often linked with community work or community planning, is often formally conducted by non-government organisations (NGOs), universities or government agencies to progress the social well-being of local, regional and, sometimes, national communities. 

Less formal efforts, called community building or community organizing, seek to empower individuals and groups of people by providing them with the skills they need to effect change in their own communities. 

These skills often assist in building political power through the formation of large social groups working for a common agenda. 

Community development practitioners must understand both how to work with individuals and how to affect communities' positions within the context of larger social institutions.
