Building Communities from the Inside Out: A Path Toward Finding and Mobilizing a Community’s Assets

This seminal 1993 book by John P Kretzmann and John L. McKnight includes a step-by-step description of asset-based community development, a strengths-based approach for identifying and building upon the human resources that are already present in any community.

The guide summarizes lessons learned by studying successful community-building initiatives in hundreds of neighborhoods across the U.S. It outlines what local communities can do to start their own journeys down the path of asset-based development.

The Asset-Based Community Development Institute is based at Northwestern University’s Institute for Policy Research.
