Through the Measuring Rural Community Vitality: Community Demonstration Projects, ROI worked alongside three community partners, noted below, on rural community vitality and well-being projects. These projects go further than the fact-finding, reporting and collection of community well-being indicators - they engage local community members in processes that build capacity for effective action and collaboration. Each partner community received $15,000 to support their demonstration project.
ROI worked with the three community partner to prepare three separate webinars that detail each project. ROI is sharing these stories so that other communities might find helpful ideas and inspiration for their own well-being projects. From collective impact models to wrap-around service delivery, each webinar offers tips and first-hand experience on how the community is implementing the findings from the well-being or Vital Signs reports.
