COMMUNITY BUILDING MILWAUKEE (CBM) INITIATIVE

In the spring of 2013, the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families (DCF) enlisted Wisconsin Community Services, Inc. (WCS) to lead the Community Building Milwaukee (CBM) initiative. The CBM initiative aims to incorporate a powerful change process called Community Building into social service, criminal justice and faith-based community programs through Community Building Workshops.

Community Building is an intense interpersonal group process and experience that promotes social and emotional learning and improves or builds on the core competencies of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship building, and responsible decision-making skills in participants.  


 CBM MISSION, GOALS AND OBJECTIVES


   ► MISSION
       To encourage people and groups to connect and heal in true community, so that they and the communities
       they share can thrive and be at peace.
  
    ► GOALS

♦ The overall goal of the Community Building Milwaukee (CBM) initiative is to incorporate a powerful change process called Community Building into social service, criminal justice and faith-based community programs across Milwaukee. 

♦ CBM does not replace existing programs, rather, Community Building enhances the outcomes and impacts of a broad range of existing programs and services.

♦ The long-term goal of the CBM initiative is to dramatically reduce crime, violence and even poverty – and put our community on a better path for the future.

   ► OBJECTIVES 

♦ Enroll, train and certify 30-40 Milwaukee facilitators to conduct Community Building Workshops

♦ Incorporate Community Building Workshops into a minimum of 30-40 social service,criminal justice and/or faith-based programs of participating agencies

♦ Support and maintain an ongoing network of Community Building Workshop facilitators to serve the Milwaukee community

VISION OF COMMUNITY BUILDING
There is a yearning in the heart for peace. Because of the wounds and rejections we have received in past relationships, we are frightened by the risks. In our fear, we discount the dream of authentic Community as merely visionary. But there are rules by which people can come back together, by which the old wounds can be healed. The purpose of Community Building is to teach these rules — to make hope real again — and to make the vision actually manifest in a world which has almost forgotten the glory of what it means to be human.

— M. Scott Peck, MD
