History

More than a decade ago, leaders from across West Virginia's network of community development practitioners came together to take a deep dive into how the sector was performing. This work culminated in the formation of a unique theory of change known as the Community Development Model and the creation of the WV Community Development Hub.

On the occasion of our 10 year anniversary, we're committing to bring together the key partners in the state community development system to consider where we've come from and where we are going together.
