Join us June 30, 12-1pm (Pacific) to hear from Dr. Brenda Krause Eheart, leading authority on how intentional neighboring can help us build community across generations & heal from the pandemic.

 

What is INTENTIONAL NEIGHBORING?

Intentional neighboring brings together neighbors of all ages on a daily basis to provide assistance and to share the ups and downs of everyday life—to develop bonds of friendship and, over time, a culture of neighborliness—of friendliness, kindness, helpfulness, and consideration. It includes community models where individuals and families of different ages, vulnerabilities and strengths live in small, intentional neighborhoods of mutual support.

THE EVENT

During this event, Eheart will spotlight how intentional neighboring helps us rediscover and revitalize relationships and renew struggling communities to address challenges in housing, care-giving, healthcare and more. Drawing on decades of experience and insights recounted in her new book, Neighbors: The Power of the People Next Door, Eheart will share stories of the “ordinary magic” of everyday people who unite us through intentional, caring relationships.

Eheart will be joined by two national leaders in intentional communities: Dr. Derenda Schubert, Executive Director of Bridge Meadows, and Dylan Tête, Executive Director of Bastion. 

Together, Eheart, Schubert, and Tête will share their experience on how intentional neighboring in diverse housing communities across age, race, ability and socioeconomic status, can help us reimagine new ways to live together and to solve the social challenges facing our nation.  

They ask us: how do we renew and revitalize struggling communities around the country? 

And they offer us real solutions – and hope.
