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
