The Woodson Center serves as a hub to its national network of indigenous community leaders and their organizations. The Woodson Center empowers these leaders with value generating principles, access to funding, leadership development training and technical assistance as they effectively work to uplift neighborhoods, alleviate poverty, curb youth violence, reintegrate the formerly incarcerated back into society and provide recovery to those facing addiction.
The principles of the market economy should be applied to the solution of societal problems.
Those suffering the problem must be involved in the creation and implementation of the solution.
The Woodson Center operates throughout the nation to help community and faith-based organizations with training, technical assistance, and linkages to sources of support. The Center chronicles and interprets their experiences to make recommendations for public policy and works to remove barriers that hamper their efforts to solve societal problems.
