In the final town hall of the Imagining Abundance Series, Dave Hillis and Cornelius Williams wrapped up their conversation on abundance and the end result of neighborliness, which we are defining as “engaging another for their benefit without being prompted, asked, or reminded.”
They were joined by Tomi Hiers, Vice President of the Center for Civic Sites & Community Change with The Annie E. Casey Foundation. Tomi shared some of the work the Foundation is doing with neighborhood transformation initiatives in Atlanta and Baltimore, linking economic, educational and housing programs to strengthen families and communities. The networks, resources, and relationships help to support vulnerable youth through a variety of programs. The conversation also offered practical and insightful advice for nonprofits to flourish and collaborate effectively.
Torrey Bates, Executive Director of For the Kingdom Camp in Memphis, TN, also joined. Torrey spoke about For The Kingdom’s incredible work serving under resourced youth of color through the summer camp experience. Torrey also serves as Sports Coordinator of LF’s Global Youth Initiative.
