Asset Based Community Recovery - Add Your Voice!

Asset Based Community Recovery - Add Your Voice!

The resilience and recovery of individuals and communities depends on social connection and working together. Using the Tamarack Institute's Asset-based Community Recovery Framework, this workshop challenges us to consider how COVID-19 has disrupted our communities, what has emerged, and what has been revealed by recognizing gifts, fostering connections, and telling stories. This framework is a different disaster recovery model because it is a bottom-up approach. It allows individuals, associations, organizations/non-profits, businesses, and municipalities to think about what role people and communities play moving forward.

Share your ideas and successes with us.

Contribute your voice, experiences, and lessons learned to this workshop! Engage in practicing connection and collaboration while creating a shared resource we can all use in our work with families and address the challenges we face from multiple perspectives.

Through this workshop you can discover the assets and capacities of your community to make our military families more resilient and aid in their recovery after a disaster.

Learning Objectives

In these workshops we will:

  • Practice a multiple-perspective, community approach to building readiness and resilience for ourselves, our organizations, and the people we serve.
  • Apply the Asset-based Community Recovery Framework to find ways to better support military family readiness and resilience in the face of complex disasters like the pandemic.
  • Design resources we can all use to inform our work with families and address the challenges we face from multiple perspectives.

  • February 3, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. ET

FAQs for Learn Calendar Users:

Will a recording be available?

That is entirely up to the host of this webinar/online event.
