ABOUT GREATER CARLISLE HEART & SOUL

In January 2016, The Greater Carlisle Project (GCP) received a one-year, $50,000 civic engagement grant from the Pennsylvania Humanities Council (PHC) to implement a resident-driven approach to community planning and development. Additionally, the Greater Carlisle Heart and Soul Project was supported for $10,000 from the South Mountain Partnership.

Following the Heart & Soul framework of the Orton Family Foundation, members of the Greater Carlisle Project, with the leadership of a new Project Director Lindsay Varner, will engage people from all segments of our community in telling, listening to and sharing stories about our community. Through the storytelling process, community members will come to know the “heart and soul” of the community – what we value, what matters most, how we relate to each other and to our landscape, and what we want for our future. The team will recognize and keep in mind that community members will answer these questions in diverse ways, and that hard work and an open and inclusive process is necessary to find common ground for actions that benefit us all. We will use the co-created knowledge of our place and ourselves to bring together residents, community organizations, businesses and public agencies in common cause for strengthening the Greater Carlisle community.
