Resilience-Guadalupe Plan

What is Resilience?

Resilience describes the capacity of communities to function, so that the people living and working in a community – particularly the poor and vulnerable – survive and thrive no matter what stresses or shocks they encounter.

“We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community… Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.”

~Cesar E. Chavez

After numerous Leadership Meetings, a community wide Stakeholder meeting, eight 7th/8th grade school presentation as mini-stakeholder meetings, and one Spanish language stakeholder meeting (see presentations below), the following spreadsheets shows all assets and impediments identified by those who participated.
