The BCC Center has developed the following publications to help communities organize around serving and connecting neighbors:

Community Toolkit

Healthy community associations are vital to our civic life in Montgomery County.  They are partners with local government in identifying needs, solving problems and setting priorities.  The Community Toolkit  and its appendix are designed to help neighbors form associations and provide established neighborhoods with a wide variety of resources. 

Village Blueprint

Villages provide critical neighbor-to neighbor connections to combat social isolation, improve mobility and access to services, and provide knowledge and support necessary to empower seniors and others to be healthy and secure.  The Village Blueprint provides guidance, examples, and links to resources that will help make your vision for your community and others yet to be created a reality.
