“People coming together to celebrate what they have and what they can do – together.” ~Darryl Answer on what is asset based community development. 

So often when we have a need, a service or institution is available with a “fix-it solution.” The solution is determined by the service and we can fit in – or not. Take it or leave it. 

Asset-based Community Development (ABCD) is different. ABCD starts with the strengths and contributions of community members. 

This week on the podcast Darryl Answer, Stephanie Answer, and April Doner talk about ABCD in their lives and the lives of people with disabilities. 

“There is nobody that we don’t need. 

The greatest need is to be needed.”

This episode includes vulnerability, strength, power and promise. 

You don’t want to miss it.
