Cultivating Capacities

Cultivating Capacities for Service

Cultivating Capacities is a collective initiative that is born out of the desire to serve others and learn in a community of  individuals who come from varied backgrounds and cultures. Activities that cultivate innate potential that empower residents to take charge of their own spiritual, social and intellectual capacities lay the foundation of how we can collectively contribute to the betterment of our neighborhood community. An education curriculum open to all, that enables individual and collective transformation through developing skills for serving others. Members from all religious backgrounds engage in several ongoing neighborhood activities where all are welcome to participate and support in any capacity. 

This is an opportunity for neighbors and community members to come together with the purpose of identifying activities that build unity and foster a vibrant community life. A space has been created for conversation and learning where residents can work together in contributing to the betterment of community. The vision for Cultivating Capacities is not just about 'offering' activities, but rather to train and accompany individuals in order to sustain activities in their own neighborhood. In addition, it serves as a hub for those who would like to serve others. Members of our community can offer talents to share with others and at the same time specific needs can be shared through Cultivating Capacities.  This initiative not only builds individual and collective capacitities that foster caring communities it also serves as a bridge for connecting community members together.

Currently, efforts for fostering a rich and vibrant community are being supported in two local neighborhoods weekly. Timber Ridge is a mobile home park located in West Fort Collins. Activities that celebrate the unique contributions of all members of a community and foster qualities that strengthen community are held weekly by Crystal Lee, resident and neighborhood coordinator. Another area where activities are being held is in the Windsor Meadows Apartments in Windsor. You can email Crystal directly or email for information in both neighborhoods. If you are interested in sharing your skills, talents and capacities with members of your community please contact us and/or fill out the form that best describes your desires. You can access the forms on the link "I WANT TO BUILD COMMUNITY".

On behalf of your neighbors, we extend our friendship and invite you to participate in building a community where children, junior youth, youth and adults can develop their great potential through learning and service to others.
