In 2009 we attended a conference in New Orleans. A tour of the city was offered to learn how New Orleans was rebuilt following the flooding from Hurricane Katrina.
We learned that the government was not able to come to the rescue, so business leaders got together to revive the city. What emerged was amazing! They built new schools, libraries, started a business incubator and they became vocal advocates for economic transformation. The pride they all felt at building the community together was obvious to everyone on the tour.
That got us to thinking about the city we were living in. What could we do to help? We’d never done much to help a city before, so where could we start? We began by studying the city of Redding. What was good about the city, what was already here that we could leverage, and what were the things that needed help.
Here’s what we found out:
Good things about Shasta County: Beauty – lakes, fly fishing, skiing, hiking, riverfront city. We have great schools that are attracting people from all over the world. Many of those people want to stay here and live and have great business ideas.
Problems: Shasta County has a high unemployment rate; one of the highest in the country, unprecedented home foreclosures, stimulus money gone, chronic illness and18%-20% of residents live at or below poverty level.
Solution: Help create jobs, to see cities transformed both economically and spiritually.
