Community partners are organizations, and in some cases public agencies and university based programs, committed to working for the improvement of services offered by a Compassionate Communities initiative in conjunction with local community government. The characteristics of effective community partners include:

  • alignment with the Charter's mission and vision
  • recognition of the value of community-based participatory approaches to learning, research, evaluation and partnerships
  • meaningful relationships with the community on multiple levels, competently facilitating partnerships and following participatory approaches
  • access to decision makers within the community
  • skills in problem solving, conflict resolution and work to maintain collaboration with all involved in a community initiative
  • special expertise in an area (i.e., technical needs, organizational design, systems thinking, other themes that relate directly to the community action plan, etc.) that a community initiative may need
  • commitment to the community and the partnership process
