The Search – Emerging Resident Leaders
Posted by Neighborhood Opportunity Network on April 26, 2009
As we knock on doors in apartment complexes in Gaithersburg, one key strategy is to be on the look out for people who can host a Neighbors Circle and begin helping in the process of building a new neighborhood network. Yesterday, while knocking on doors in the Streamside Apartment Community, we met a very interesting young woman. She’s originally from El Salvador, but has lived here since she was ten years old. She is married to a man from Liberia, is the mother of three young children (see picture below) and used to work in the rental office. She was excited to meet us and seemed eager to get involved. She is exactly the type of person who we want to get to know and encourage their leadership and involvement in the months ahead.
