“I serve on the Board of Directors for Embrace because I believe asset base community development to be the strongest and most fruitful approach to community development.  Among many other facets of this approach it respects the dignity of every human being.  Embrace is one of the most effective asset based community development organizations around.  Wendy McCaig is an excellent communicator of this approach to community development. I hope you will get involved with Embrace Richmond and help us fulfill our mission of strengthening communities from the inside out. ” -Rev. John Maher, Embrace Richmond Board Secretary
