Foothills Community Foundation (2014-present)

This participatory action research project aims to train a community in the northern Phoenix metropolitan area to gather, analyze, and synthesize community indicators of well-being and success. This project helps this community foundation to cultivate board member development and community capacity building through an assessment of their community’s vision, needs, and assets.

our tools

The Partnership for Community Development is committed to using modern-day tools in our research and community-building work. In particular, we use the following tools in our work.

1) Catalytic Storytelling

Our reports are not meant to simply report what is happening in a community, but they seek to aid the community in continuing to ask questions about their community to facilitate positive change.

our methods

We believe that community storytelling is not only a process, but an essential outcome of community development.

  • Review of Literature and Best Practices
  • Community Questionnaires
  • Community Vital Signs
