Cottonwood Tucson’s Community Involvement
Communication leads to community, that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing… Rollo May
The word "community" is popular in today’s world of social media; however, community has been a strategic part of our culture for centuries. We came together as a community when our nation was founded, social movements grew and created communities working together for a common goal, and organizations joined forces for the common good working to bring about sociological changes, improved physical and mental health and ultimately seeking solutions to identified problems.
It is important to understand that a community can be as small as a family unit, extended family, co-workers, schools, to as large as a village, town, city, state or country. We all, in some fashion, belong to these communities. We may be actively or passively involved, but certainly we come to understand that our level of involvement brings value to both the individuals and the community at large.
Cottonwood ultimately believes we can be, indeed must be responsible not only to the needs of our patients but to the community and world in which we live.
Cottonwood Tucson is a unique organization with an engaged staff. We have built a strong foundation with a commitment to our immediate communities of patients and staff gradually enhancing these intertwined "branches" by actively pledging our efforts to work with local and regional projects.
