“Asset Based Community Development” or ABCD looks for and starts from people’s gifts and strengths (assets).

These assets equip people to create local opportunities and respond to needs and challenges in their neighbourhoods.

ABCD goes beyond any individual’s gifts or particular group’s strengths to consider how these may come together to create broader changes for the common good within a community.
