Citizens and businesses are coming together in a grassroots and community effort to significantly improve the overall quality of life in Flint neighborhoods, by: Increasing the collective impact by building on the efforts of the good work currently being done by many groups and caring individuals; Using existing resources or assets to transform neighborhoods; and creating doable action focused on lifelong learning, jobs and money, retail renaissance, community safety, gangs and ex-offenders, housing, healthy residents, arts and culture, opportunities for youth, and parks, open space, and greening. Neighborhoods Without Borders uses Strategic Doing, a process which enables people to form action collaborations quickly, guide them toward measurable outcomes, and make adjustments along the way.
