In order to develop social capital, people need time and space to connect with others, time to build trust with friends, a means to effectively communicate, and an opportunity for genuine participation, not mere presence. The session explored:

  • the importance of connecting to one's community.
  • how to build social capitol in the lives of individuals.
  • about models that support self-direction, are individualized, and offer opportunities for participation.
  • and the need to shift from a traditional model of services to a model that helps people build community connections.
