Home & Community


Success! in Home and Community is part of a program that moves individuals, families and communities from poverty to prosperity through neighborhood self-reliance groups.  This program allows non-governmental organizations, government agencies, micro-finance institutions, churches and schools worldwide to help their members strengthen their families and become more self-reliant. Home and Community are two of the four components of the overall Interweave Self-Reliance Program (HOME, COMMUNITY, EDUCATION and INCOME).

Through Home & Community neighborhood self-reliance groups, parents come together and lead discussions on how they can strengthen family relationships and serve in their community. Real-life situations will be discussed along with establishing a quality of life and community action plan. The group together will create a service project that will benefit their community. By improving family relationships and community people can move from poverty to prosperity.
