ThriveABI updates as of June 20, 2022:
In case the concept of a CAWG doesn't ring any bells, here's a quick recap. When our community underwent the visioning process in 2019, we held forums and focus groups to talk about the full range of factors impacting the quality of life in Abilene. We then grouped those factors into these six cause areas:
The CAWGs include people representing agencies that do work affecting each of these cause areas. These groups started meeting monthly in April, and here's what they have accomplished so far:
CAWGs will reconvene in July to finalize the goals, then in August, they will begin identifying strategies to work toward those goals. Once the goals are finalized, we will share them publicly so our entire community can know what work is being done.
