                    WHAT WE DO: RAFF

Background – The Model, philosophy and RAFF

In 1995 CBR developed a model or path for Community Capacity Building and Asset Mapping© which includes the Steps to Capacity Success© and is the philosophical foundation for what CBR does.   We use asset based community building, focusing on what communities have, not what they do not have.! The accompanying relationship-based asset mapping (really a precursor to graphic facilitation) is also fun to use and is readily taken on by communities.

 

In 1997 and 1998 with the insights and interest of community leaders across the nation and in the USA we learned the Value of RAFF – Relationships Action Food and Fun. If there is no food or fun interest is lost!

We continue to love our work with communities as they create environments of rewarding relationships that develop and grow, and where creativity thrives. CBR sparks and supports successful community building by facilitating the discovery and mobilizing of the ‘full-half of the glass” in communities - the talents, gifts, and assets of people and groups - while showing ways to connect all these so communities can determine the best creative and effective use of local resources. The work of CBR results in outcomes that mobilize and positively impact the communities’ capitals - social, political, cultural, financial, human, natural, built capital. It is fun!  AND the feeling and spirit of community is rekindled!
