Community Building Blocks

GPCA employs a community building/community development philosophy to underpin and guide its work, including its management strategies, decision-making processes, and its interaction with the community. Community building promotes a community’s physical, economic and social development – improved housing and safety, increased financial resources for individuals and the community as a whole. Our philosophy links programs, services and activities with social reform and advocacy so that individuals, families, businesses and the community itself have the rights, responsibility and capacity to influence their circumstances of the daily lives.
