4 Community Aspirations

During a period of 24 months, United Way visited 42 different groups of Buncombe County residents and asked 326 people about their dreams for a good community.  We asked them what kind of community they want, what it means to have a good life, what gets in the way of that here, and what can be done to fix those obstacles.


We learned a lot and we are inspired by their thoughtful conversations with each other.  People were sincere and forthright in their responses. When we compiled all the responses, we realized 4 strong themes from every conversation.
