Community Vitality is published twice a year in printed format and online for community leaders by the Ford Institute for Community Building.

This publication has a threefold purpose: to share information about the practical aspects of building communities, to increase awareness of the availability of community building resources, and to share success stories.


Please help us make this publication a valuable resource by sharing your comments or ideas. The views expressed by the authors in bylined articles are not necessarily the views of the Foundation.
