Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of the 2015-2016 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with Carver County. Carver County is home to five manufactured home parks, and the County's Public Health Department was interested in ways to better engage with residents of the parks around health, social service, and other needs. The goal of the project was to determine barriers to engagement and strategies for getting past those barriers. Carver County project lead Tami LaGow collaborated with three teams of students in SW 8551: Advanced Community Practice--Assessment, Organizing, and Advocacy, to determine barriers and develop strategies and recommendations. Each student team focused on a different manufactured home community in Carver County. The students' aggregated final report and a poster are available.
Report and poster completed by students enrolled in SW 8551: Advanced Community Practice--Assessment, Organizing, and Advocacy, taught by Dr. Elizabeth Lightfoot in spring 2016.
