This brief webinar presents the Restorative Integral Support (RIS) model, showing how to identify and tap a range of community assets and individual strengths to build community wealth and resilience. Service providers, policymakers, community leaders, and in fact all community members, play roles in creating resilient, resourceful communities. Leadership sets an example and the cultural tone in programs and neighborhoods. The RIS model emphasizes supporting self-care among staff members and neighborhood leaders who provide role modeling and relationship-building in service and through support networks. When using RIS, it becomes clear that policies and system design are also key interventions that influence healthy community development.
