HRCCE will tackle any issue that is challenging the region or any of its municipalities. We believe that it’s critically important to change the cause rather than only addressing the symptom.
Who we are...
The region's ONLY organization focused solely on building trust and strengthening social capital through civic engagement
What we do...
The Hampton Roads Center for Civic Engagement (HRCCE) structures and facilitates civic engagement processes
that provide for the productive collaboration between the citizens and their governments.
I deserve a say
Unless you tell your elected officials that you want to
be part of the decision making process,
they’ll probably go on making decisions the way they always have.
How we can help you...
There are a variety of techniques available to public agencies to improve their reputation,
to develop constituencies of support, and to increase trust through positive and productive partnerships with citizens.
How you can help your community...
The Center advises, assists and encourages organizations in the use of effective, cutting edge public involvement methods suitable to their needs.
