dc.description.abstractIn their respective theories on human nature, Karl Marx and Ferdinand Tonnies both postulate that community is an intrinsic human need that is not being satisfied in capitalist societies. Fragmentation and alienation are gradually replacing group membership and moral fulfillment, leaving entire populations without the social necessities of humanity. My theoretical analyses will suggest that community-based nonprofits are the most effective institutions in fighting fragmentation and promoting the resurgence of classical communities. This claim is supported by a case study and reflection of my time working for Harriet Tubman Center, a community-based nonprofit located in Detroit, MI.en_US
