Today there are great and ever increasing opportunities for progressive communities to work out solutions to their common social problems and to build a better life for all their citizens. Financial aid is not lacking. It is available from a large array of private and governmental agencies and often these funds go begging for want of community interest and innovative ideas. It is felt therefore that the presentation of one community's experience might be helpful to others by providing an example of what can be done.
The beginning of the process is an idea. By following this idea from its inception through its development into a plan of action and by seeing this idea work, it is hoped that other new and innovative ideas might be sped on their way.
