Founded by Anita C. Fonte, PhD., in 2003, Community Renaissance has offered public process research, analysis, training and facilitation services, particularly focusing on the processes of community capacity-building and decision-making through community-based public participation and engagement. In 2010, the Partnership for Equity and Civic Engagement, initiated as a collaborative effort among non-profits in 2007, became a program division of Community Renaissance.
