DRRP Fact Sheet

Fact Sheet

Customized Employment Topics: Social Capital - Relationships form as people interact with each other at home, work, and in the community. Relationships help create a quality life and are critical to a person’s well-being. There is data indicating that positive relationships contribute to longevity and happiness. Physically being in the community; however, does not mean being of the community, or said another way, belonging to a community. Belonging takes more than a physical presence. A community is defined as the places where people have the opportunity to interact and form connections; where trust in and respect for each other can build; and where the norm is to help each other. These characteristics of relationships connect individuals and result in Social Capital.
