Community Resilience Projects

Do you have an idea for a new project that will help increase your community’s long-term resilience? Post it here to request volunteers, resources, donations, fundraisers, partners, and sponsors. Ongoing projects and organizations involved with community resilience are welcome, too. And if you’ve been involved in a project that has wrapped up, feel free to share the details so that others can learn from your experiences.

And for now, until we get our forum up and running, we recommend that you set up a Slack group to organize your project with the people who would like to get involved.
