An integral part of the work that we do is turning outward and listening to the community. A tool that helps us accomplish this is community conversations. They consist of 8-12 people having a "kitchen table" type conversation. It allows participants to speak honestly and freely about how they feel about the community. We discuss both aspirations and challenges for Madison County As well as ideas for how to help those who are financially unstable.
We want to know what you are thinking, since this is your community. We don't want to make assumptions as to what the right thing to do is, and we aren't trying to create any quick fixes. But we need your help to be able to do that. If you are interested in putting together a group of people for a conversation or would like to participate in one please contact Sally at firstname.lastname@example.org
