Harm Reduction – Taking steps to reduce harm in people’s lives by valuing where they are and helping them move to a place of less harm. Multi-level Approach - Working simultaneously in many spheres (the individual, family, community and systemic). Community Economic Development - Supporting local goods, services, investment, employment, decision making and skill building while promoting neighbourhood sustainability, human dignity and the environment.
