Asset Based Assessment
As communities grow and change, new problems and issues must be addressed. Rather than focusing on the deficits of communities, SWI has pioneered the model of identifying intrinsic community assets including skills, talents, knowledge as well as services. Building community assessments around assets is accomplished by collecting, analyzing, and using data to educate and mobilize communities, organize resources, and plan actions to ultimately improve health and welfare outcomes and build stronger communities for all citizens.Partners

A third generous annual donation of $8,000 from the Flagstaff Arizona Community Foundation and their partners the Ernest and Evelyn Chilson Foundation, the Forest Highlands Foundation, the Geile Charitable Fund, the GeoFund, and the Molly and Joseph Herman Foundation was made on October 17, 2013!
These funds will EXCLUSIVELY be used to continue uninterrupted support for our part-time Flagstaff area Connect-to-Help Circle Coordinator, Tracey Grantham, who is responsible for assisting families to identify needs, recruits new helpers, disseminating lists of needs to Helpers, delivering donations to families and individuals, as well as serving as the critical point of contact and referral within the Flagstaff community.
C2HC relies on the generosity of community members to rapidly respond to the targeted needs of other Flagstaff citizens though the automated C2HC website, www.swiftresource.com. In addition to the infrastructure support from the Flagstaff Community Foundations and their partners, we greatly appreciate the generosity of the over 1,800 community Helpers (donors) across the Flagstaff community, who, to date, have met over 5,000 registered needs from Flagstaff and the surrounding communities by donating materials and services to those in need.
Donations of in-kind support include child and adult clothing, annual back-to-school supplies, new books for school age and younger children and reading tips for parents, used cars for transportation, bus tokens, bicycles, televisions, donated medical and dental care, furniture, computers, phone cards, and Christmas gifts. To date, 85% of needs registered with C2HC have been met by community Helper generosity. Again, special thanks are extended to the Flagstaff Arizona Community Foundation and their partners the Ernest and Evelyn Chilson Foundation, the Forest Highlands Foundation, the Geile Charitable Fund, and GeoFund, and Molly and Joseph Herman Foundation for their generous support..
