At Narrow The Gap!, we are especially committed to connecting people with resources and "news you can use" to help yourself, your loved ones and the communities in which you live. Today's site of interest is the Community Tool Box, a free online resource for those working to build healthier communities and bring about social change. The Tool Box offers thousands of pages of tips and tools for taking action in communities.

From the website:


The vision behind the Community Tool Box is that people — locally and globally — are better prepared to work together to change conditions that affect their lives. Our mission is to promote community health and development by connecting people, ideas, and resources.

With the belief that people can change their communities for the better, partners at the University of Kansas and collaborating organizations developed the Community Tool Box as a public service.

Our fervent hope is that these tools can make it easier for people to take action to assure healthier and more just communities throughout the world.


The Community Tool Box is a public service of the Work Group for Community Health and Development at the University of Kansas. The Work Group also provides a variety of services including technical assistance and training and participatory evaluation of community-based efforts.
