Heart & Soul

The Community Foundation is pleased to partner with Vermont’s Orton Family Foundation to bring the Community Heart & SoulTM process to Hancock County.

Community Heart & Soul is an approach to community development and planning developed by the Orton Family Foundation that increases participation in local decision-making and invites residents to shape the future of their communities based on what matters most to them.

Through a $136,000 grant, our first Heart & Soul town was announced in 2015 as the Village of McComb. Since then, the results have spoken for themselves.

The Community Foundation is pleased to announce it will be seeking a second Heart & Soul project to begin in 2017. Contact Brian Treece for more information.
