1. Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD): in this model, instead of starting from a needs analysis of the community, the ABCD model starts with a strength analysis, and assess how the community can improve using its members’ assets.
2. Association for Community Health Improvement: this model seeks to strengthen the community health through education. It brings together and supports leaders from health care and other community sectors to identify and address community health goals.
3. Cultural Complementarity Model: Based on the beliefs that (1) working together will lead to the elimination of racism, since racism is based on our values as human beings, and that (2) a celebration of differences evolves out of dialogue and exchange among participants, the Cultural Complementary model proposes that such ideas be developed during the process of working for mutually agreed goals.
