Journey to the Future in Full Swing
By CEO, Nancy Johnson
This coming year marks an important moment in our City’s history. This year we plan to move forward on renewing our community vision. The last time we engaged in a community planning process like the Citywide Master Plan, it was motivated by a hurricane. This time it’s about opportunity, and a desire for a shared vision. For TEAM it represents a return to our roots, and the emergence once again of our core mission, stewardship of community development.
Thanks to Incredible leadership among our board and chairs, not to mention an army of tireless and talented volunteers, TEAM is stronger than ever, ready to take on the next steps as our community moves forward. Learn more about next steps here

TEAM Builds! Breaks Ground
For the second consecutive year, TEAM has joined Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity to build a house for a low-income family. Ground breaking at the 328 E. Virginia Avenue home site was January 8!

Volunteers will work Tuesdays and Thursdays through early April in hopes the family can move in by Easter. No experience or particular skills are necessary. Contractors are employed by Habitat to perform the more difficult tasks. Short on time? Consider a donation to help offset the cost of feeding and supplying the crew.
