We believe communities are most successful and thriving when investments are resident-driven and when neighborhoods have access to those things that matter to them most. We want neighborhood residents themselves to have voice, influence, resources, and networks to drive their neighborhoods’ success.
In 2017, CICF launched a community ambassador program to engage and elevate the voices of residents. We tasked them with listening to people and elevating their voices in discussions about the assets in their community, where gaps still existed and where funding could make a difference.
The vision of our ambassadors is to connect under-appreciated communities with needed resources and social capital through advocacy, urgency and equity.
If you have questions about our community ambassador program, please contact us at OEI@cicf.org.
