Imagine what a more empathetic and compassionate Transylvania County might look like.


"A community is the mental and spiritual condition of knowing that the place is shared, and that the people who share the place define and limit the possibilities of each other's lives. It is the knowledge that people have of each other, their concern for each other, their trust in each other, the freedom with which they come and go among themselves." — Wendell Berry

 

Project Empathy exists to:

  • Respect our differences and support ways to build bridges to connect us
  • Promote opportunities for sharing life experiences and perspectives and celebrating our uniqueness
  • Be a model of inclusivity
  • Understand our shared humanity and work toward a greater sense of belonging and respect
  • Raise community awareness and understanding of empathy
  • Encourage collaboration, innovation and problem-solving
  • Foster and promote opportunities for educational and occupational enrichmenT
