Funding is needed to provide the services mentioned in the article. The accountability to provide services that create stability, sustainability, and a better quality of life lies within the hands of the agencies, and those providing the services. Whether it is in a nursing home, school, the welfare systems, health and training. It has to start somewhere and at the grassroots will make the most difference.
Bipartisanism of the body of governing our US Senate is needed to reinvent our government.

Administrative decisions made by politicians impact human service organizations level of affectiveness. Often the resources are not available due to cut backs in government funding. Are politicians values in alignment with the values of human services orgs? I don't think so.

His vision is clear, his journey is long, but his passion is real and steadfast. An inspiration to be recognized and duplicated!

I believe that maintianing a level of realistic optimism is important. However, when you speak of polictics and values in the same arena ha - well actions based on situational values historically seems to be the choice. If we take a look back in history, the Native Americans, slavery, was the practice or philosophy of "sustaninable values" involved. I would say not. I love my country but unfortunately many of those in leadership don't know about transforming leadership or the meaning of 'sustainable values'. Our president willingly took leadership in a time of financial turmoil and if the leaders Washington don't get their heads out of their a-- and do what is right it is going to get much worse.

Illusional views definately can cause person in leadership to make decisions based on their own values and beliefs. It's unfortunate that a leader such as the President who has the very important responsibility of making decisions that are in the best intersest of the people is jaded and ends in long-term detriment to the 'people', the community, and globally.

I agree with the writer that it is important for change to begin at the leadership level. In my opinion the reality where corporate or non-profit looking inward presents vulnerability. Reality is no department , team or individual wants to feel they will be viewed as the weakest link. This competitiveness is taught in early childhood and only gets more intense throughout the early stages of the lifespan. Hopefully somewhere along they way the ability be able to accept criticizism and learn from it is instilled.
Based on my experiences working in both a non-profit organizion and a for-profit corporation which were both structured hierarchical breakages in communication flowed lateral, upward and downward. I found the artical an interesting read.
Heitage cannot be replaced by jobs or promises. The intitial development of the stadium erased the communities footprint. I feel I can safely express myself with the statement that inner city redevelopment and "revitalization" across the states mimic this very issue. It is no surprise that the Rays are lobbying the African American community to gain enough support to move forward. No matter the minority group if small business loans are not made available the 'words' of advocating for increased minority businesses etc...are just 'words'.
