COMMUNITY BUILDING. “Community building is more an orientation than a technique, more an outlook than an activity. A community’s own strengths, whether they are found in churches, block clubs, local leadership, or its problem-solving abilities, are central. Community building is based on the belief that urban neighbors and neighborhood institutions can and must be primary actors in efforts to solve the problems of their neighborhoods.” -- Lizbeth Schorr in Common Purpose (Doubleday, 1997)
