What is community?

It is not a place, a building, or an organization, according to David M. Chavis, PhD, CEO of Community Science, Gaithersburg, Maryland; nor is it an exchange of information over the Internet. “Community is both a feeling and a set of relationships among people. People form and maintain communities to meet common needs. The meaning of community requires more thoughtfulness and deliberation than we typically give it,” Chavis says.
