Transcript of Community Asset Mapping

Community Asset Mapping
Asset mapping provides information about the strengths and resources of a community and can help uncover solutions.

Allows for thought as to how to build on these assets to address community needs and improve health.

Promotes community involvement, ownership, and empowerment.
Assets Vs. Deficits

The capacities and abilities of community members,

A physical structure or place. (Example; schools, hospital, church library, recreation center, or social club),

A business that provides jobs and supports the local economy, and

Local private, public, and nonprofit institutions or organizations.
What is a Community Asset?
What are the assets, positive aspects, of my community? What do I love about my community? What story do I share about my community? (small group convo)
"Asset Mapping" is derived from an "asset-based" approach to community development, and refers to a range of approaches that work from the principle that a community can be built only by focusing on the strengths and capacities of the citizens and associations that call a neighborhood, community or county "home".

As described by Kretzmann and McKnight1, there are three levels of assets to be considered. The first is the "gifts, skills and capacities" of the individuals living in the community. The second level of assets includes "citizen associations" through which local people come together to pursue common goals. The third level of assets is those institutions present in community, such as local government, hospitals, education, and human service agencies.
Phase One: Determining residents’ needs and current resources

 Phase Two: Searching your community

 Phase Three: Identifying potential resources

 Phase Four: Verifying asset mapping results

 Phase Five: Reporting asset mapping results

web exercise
Communities can only be built by focusing on the strengths and capacities
of the citizens who call that community home. Those who have escaped
the lures of deficiency, therefore, have been drawing up a new map based
on old truths, an “Assets Map”... At the center of the map, and of the
community building process, lie the “gifts” of individual residents, their
knowledge, skills, resources, values, and commitments.

(John Kretzman,1997).
Personal Asset Mapping
What do we consider assets? Put yourself in the center and begin a personal asset map. Around you, write down your assets.

Discuss:
What are the hidden assets in your community, how can untapped assets be pooled for a community project? what assets do you want to see in your community?

Examples:

Barriers
Discuss: What are some barriers to focusing on assets and how can we address and overcome them? What are the hidden assets?
Brainstorm
As we define and discuss categories of assets,
begin to list the assets in your neighborhood.
