Community Assets



A community asset is something is valuable to a community and that improves quality of life and inspires ownership and shared power. It can be a person, a resource, a tool, or a place. Assets can be identified at the individual level based on personal relationships, community groups, or institutions with more formal structures, like schools, parks, or recreation centers.

This project seeks to better understand and centralize the localized assets in multicultural communities in Utah through this dynamic directory. The directory will be reviewed and updated on a semi-annual basis.

"Communities have never been built upon their deficiencies. Building community has always depended upon mobilizing the capacities and assets of a people and a place. That is why a knowledge of neighborhood assets is necessary if local people are to find the way toward empowerment and renewal.1
