The National Center for Community Renewal will provide an opportunity to teach and train individuals and groups from other cities in the Shreveport-Bossier Community Renewal concepts, philosophy, and strategies for the rebuilding of safe and caring communities. Our goal is to disseminate our methodology in cities across America.
To accommodate the variety of individuals and groups that the National Center would serve, the National Center will be organized under three primary Divisions: the Training Center, the Resource Support Center, and the Institute for Research and Strategy.
To accomplish the renovation of the building donated in downtown Shreveport to house the National Center and provide initial start up funds for the Center, a Capital Funding Drive will be organized to raise the approximately 25 million necessary to renovate the building into a multi-room housing and teaching facility including classrooms, office area, and conference rooms. Funding will be sought from national corporations, individual philanthropists, private national foundations, and from national and state sources through partnerships with the City of Shreveport. A National Advisory Board is being formed with founding members, Virginia K. Shehee, President of Kilpatrick Life Insurance Co., Senator and Mrs. J. Bennett Johnston, Charlie McBride of McBride & Associates, and John D. Caruthers, President of I-69 Project.
The concept of a National Center for Community Renewal in Shreveport has been received enthusiastically throughout our community. The public sector and private sector and organizations and businesses throughout our community have indicated enthusiastic support for the establishment of the National Center. Collaborating partners include:
