Project Description

Established in 2006, Forsyth Futures is a non-profit collaborative of residents, organizations and institutions working together to address critical community issues. The mission of Forsyth Futures is to put community knowledge to work by being an objective catalyst, connecting people and serving as a convener. Community knowledge is obtained by tracking issue indicators to identify community conditions, trends, and needs in six areas: (1) economic self-sufficiency/development, (2) community engagement, (3) educational success, (4) mental and physical health, (5) safety and (6) environmental stewardship. Forsyth Futures uses other community information tools such as Initiascape© software, a program which documents the landscape of the community’s initiatives around an issue. This tool also demonstrates the links between individuals, organizations or groups working on an issue. Forsyth Futures then provides and/or applies this knowledge by leading or supporting initiatives that strategically address community issues. Forsyth Futures seeks to enhance the ability to expand community knowledge by coordinating and providing a platform for supporting all residents, organizations, and agencies that reside within Forsyth County.
