Few if any communities are immune from challenges that, left unchecked, threaten the security, wellbeing and futures of their citizens. Learn how the Resilience United method can be used to approach some of the most pressing issues facing communities large and small today.
Recognizing the Need for Resilience
In almost any community, the question isn’t if a disaster will occur, but when. That’s why the key to minimizing the human toll during and after a disaster is to have a plan in place to react quickly and effectively.
Our earth’s climate is anything but constant, and nowhere is immune from its effects. The key is to understand how climate change will affect your community and what you can do to help minimize the potential negative impact.
Often, a community’s efforts at confronting violence are reactive. The Resilience United approach is designed to allow communities to proactively build a hedge against future problems while solving the specific issues at hand.
Regardless of the type of disaster, the people who are most at risk are those who are suffering from any variety of mental health conditions. The Resilience United approach recognizes that this vulnerable population requires a special focus in any resilience planning.
