Community Engagement

As a NeighborWorks organization, we believe that community residents are the best authorities on what makes their community thrive. Resident knowledge, skills, relationships, leadership and collective ability are the keys to create and sustain positive change. This matters because resident engagement leads to more effective and lasting solutions, ongoing community investment, and the active citizenry necessary to create and maintain vibrant communities where all people can thrive.

RuralEdge is committed to creating opportunities that allow residents to improve their lives and strengthen communities, and one of the best ways to do that is to get involved.

Whether working with the community at large, or focusing on individual Resident Councils at our properties, RuralEdge strives to make our neighborhoods positive and enjoyable places to live through education, communication, partnership and participation.

We collaborate with many local community agencies, like Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital, Council on Aging, NEKCA, and Umbrella, working toward common goals of providing comprehensive support services for the people of the Northeast Kingdom.
