Project Description

BrightSpot Communities is a developer of sustainable communities and a vital community development company. It is the innovator of the BrightSpot model - a holistic vision of the 'cities of tomorrow'.

 

In collaboration with Believing A Miracle, BrightSpot is launching the development of a sustainable community in Gulf Coast Florida (Sarasota area).  Our first community will be built for 300 veteran / active military women and is called RISE WITH HONOR.

 

Rise with Honor targets the holistic healing, education and community support needs of veteran and active military women women who are living with PTSD resulting from combat or who have experience sexual assault or harassment while in service to our country. 

 

This 80-some acre sustainable planned community will be a dynamic health campus for 300 women veterans and their families. 

 

 

 

Our total vision includes:

 

  1. Deepen our collaboration with the Veterans Administration, Departments of Women / Compassionate Care.

  2. Create team infrastructure / training for the development of a BrightSpot Sustainable Healing Community for 300 women veterans / active military (and their families) recovering from PTSD. 

  3. Implement a wider marketing campaign to reach private investors and grants for full financing.

  4. Develop the Florida-wide network of support partners that will be catalyzed to serve all women veterans.

  5. Implement the Rise With Honor Conference in early 2019 (Orlando FL); for veteran women who have experienced military sexual assault

  6. Identify research partner in Florida for evaluation.

BrightSpot is both a planned community design and improvement strategy that offers a new approach to creating and sustaining vital communities.  Through a menu of services, technologies and partnerships - every BrightSpot community becomes generative; catalyzing economic prosperity, the balance of habitat and greater of quality of life for residents.

 

Rise with Honor is a partnership venture between two (2) women-led organizations; BrightSpot Communities LLC (Cleveland OH) and Believing A Miracle (our nonprofit partner in Atlanta GA), lead by Pastor Sederia Graves.

 

 

 

The mission of BrightSpot is to inspire sustainable places and lifestyles that inspire the vitality in citizens, families, neighborhoods, economy and institutions.
