What We Do

VOCF produces sustainable communities.

VOCF uses common-sense, back to the basics methods that empower local communities from Day One.

VOCF's Process

A key reason VOCF produces sustainable results is our process.  Each step is led by the community itself.

  • Build Community Relationships
  • Train Local Leaders
  • Analyze Community Assets and Problems
  • Create a Community Vision
  • Make a Plan
  • Implement
  • Review Results
  • Celebrate

Conventional Processes

Conversely, conventional processes are typically led by outsiders, even when trying to include the community as a participant.

  • Programming (outside organization's program)
  • Identification (where outside programs are needed)
  • Formulation (outsider's plan)
  • Implementation
  • Monitoring (by outsider)
  • Evaluation (by outsider)
