People often see problems and come up with solutions. Then they do something about that problem. Their process, though, is not usually
carefully thought out. While an engineer will carefully design a bridge to meet the traffic needs and to hold up to the physical environment. Social change
agents usually just jump in.
And most of the time what they do makes an obvious difference.

We at Community Empowerment Research have thought through the steps needed to make the most efficient changes. And it is a circular process.
We have the training and experience to take a careful look at every step of the development process for social solutions. And we partner with you to
use your expertise in the area you are good at: providing services.
