About Community Resilience Organizations
Resilience Teams are local, volunteer-based nodes of CROs that receive organizational, structural, and financial support from CROs to build “community-sufficiency,” which means meeting basic human needs on the local level in a way that’s environmentally and socially sustainable. CROs increases community capacity with resources that accelerate action while strengthening social cohesion and regional ties.
Teams have diverse community participation to help bridge social gaps. Some teams include a mix of Select Board members, conservation and planning commissioners, food co-op volunteers, emergency responders, town managers, farmers, watershed groups, foresters - and many other engaged citizens who care about their communities. They are the local problem-solvers!
