At all times and in everything we do,
We are Inclusive
We support Openness
We build Trust
We facilitate Solutions
--- we connect people and their ideas so healthy and flourishing
neighborhoods can emerge.
We embrace discussion of divergent views and we honor different points of view.
.What can we produce that will increase well-being in the neighborhoods in which we live?
NEIGHBORHOODS CONNECT works to connect, support, and build healthy, flourishing neighborhoods.
NEIGHBORHOODS CONNECT is here to be the backbone for a collective impact effort that improves well-being in neighborhoods, and for implementation and support of "the Seven Functions that only effectively organized neighborhoods can provide." ***
These functions are:
3. Environment & Resources
4. Resilient Economy
5. Local Food
6. Socialization & Raising of Children
