Organization Information

Mission Statement

The Community Engagement unit of the Neighborhood Services Department was established to create and define a variety of models and resources of engagement to encourage behavior that led to empowerment and influence positive practices throughout the City of Winston-Salem.

Description

Community engagement is the involvement and participation of an organized effort for the holistic benefit of the community. When community engagement is done well, regardless of the overall purpose and objectives of the engagement activity, it can create conditions where individuals and communities can take power make or contribute to decisions that may influence the social, economic, cultural and political determinants of health. Likewise, evidence suggests that poor community engagement practice can cause harm, leading to disillusionment and disempowerment.
