As stated in the thesis project, "The purpose of this community economic development project is to develop and implement a structured information and referral program for Humboldt-Sweets residents. By residents having information and referral services centrally located in the neighborhood, it will help to improve the quality of life for residents in the community. Information is power and a crucial component to having residents become self-sufficient. This center will provide the residents with human development resources. This center will also provide technical assistance and enable residents of a very low-income community to take charge of their lives through dissemination of information and referral obtained in the neighborhood. By having such a center in the neighborhood, residents will not have to seek out necessary information outside the neighborhood, this usually results in transportation problems.The personal gratification in the planning, development and implementation phases of this project enabled me to bring together all community resources possess and help a community that would truly benefit from referrals they will not have to leave the community obtain."
