About ParabolasSW Partner
Building and strengthening the social and cultural fabric that binds us is the work of community-driven economic development. The goals established to result in resilient, sustainable, creative, and healthy neighborhoods and towns.
The climate crisis challenges us further in the work of revitalization. Successful strategies for bettering the lives of individuals, neighborhoods, and communities are rooted in the cultural, spiritual, and historic fabric unique to each place. ParabolaSW works with communities and their local leaders to build skills and expand the community revitalization toolbox to meet the needs of the future.
The art of living follows a trajectory of our dance through a very short time. There are moments the dance focuses on each of us as individuals. At times it is the collective spirit and work that gives us meaning contributing to the communal good. It begins with discovery through the telling of our stories. Our building from those stories manifests at the intersection of community engagement and personal exploration, expression, reflection, and celebration. Here is where we find our Parabola.
ParabolaSW Partners, with community residents, leaders, and elected officials in the process of rediscovering the story of a place and people, assists the process of a community’s "writing down its bones," articulating its values and parameters that are the foundation for creating a pathway to community-based and community-appropriate economic revitalization.
From process to implementation, ParabolaSW has a variety of tools, skills, and knowledge to share in a community asset-based approach to assist in civic engagement and community outreach, arriving at community-based goals for economic opportunity and well-being.
