Why are you interested in the Millcreek Promise Health Committee Mission?
"Because I am interest in supporting cities that want to build sustainable, equitable and inclusive communities through asset-based approaches. The opposite of asset-based is needs-based, which generally looks for deficits and gaps instead of what the community already offers or can potentially offer. I care most about 1) livable wages; 2) community support; and 3) job training."
