community sustainable development solutions' activities for teaching/
learning, training, conducting research, and providing public service.
Over a 10-year period, US saw the poor population grow
by 12.3 million, driving the total number of Americans in
poverty to a historic high of 46.2 million. Areas of
concentrated poverty place additional burdens on poor
families that live within them beyond what the families
own individual circumstances would dictate. Also, these
areas can have wider effects on surrounding neighbor-
hoods, not classified as "high-poverty," limiting overall
economic potential and social cohesion.
The Center for Community Excellence, Inc and its
partners are dedicated to providing leadership in the
search for community sustainable development
approaches. Through HELP3 on Strategic Developmental
Scholarship (SDS), we are promoting pervasive quality of
life improvement. Education, practiced in the form and
process of SDS, is being promoted as a means of
overcoming poverty related learned helplessness and
priming individuals and institutions with critical/civic
commitment that would powerfully counter poverty and its
various manifestations. APPEAL FOR HELP.
