We made a huge mistake when we focused on programs, grants, and funding. We must FOCUS on the PEOPLE who are supposed to BENEFIT from programs, grants, and funding. There is no more room for people with social service and education careers and community organizations if they can’t be accountable for the results they need to produce.
–> COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT OF INTENDED BENEFICIARIES AND THOSE CLOSE TO THEM
