Resident Empowerment

resident empowerment
We strongly believe in developing tenant leaders to be agents of change for themselves and their communities. To do this we engage residents in neighborhood discussions on safety, neighborhood planning projects, and public policy measures. We assist residents in developing independent Tenant Councils at their buildings. We support their democratic elections as well as provide trainings for newly-elected Tenant Council members. In partnership with Chinatown CDC’s Organizing Team, we offer grassroots leadership trainings for emerging tenant leaders and opportunities to participate in national leadership conferences sponsored by NeighborWorks America.
