Why Create Caring Communities?
Let’s face it, developing community and good relationships in an apartment complex isn’t easy, and it doesn’t come naturally for most people. You’re busy, maybe you’re shy or uncertain of how to introduce yourself to your neighbors.
When we know our neighbors we feel safer, we enjoy where we live more, we just feel more connected. Like neighborhoods of old, knowing that your neighbors recognize you and your family brings a sense of security and community. We all like the concept of knowing our neighbors, but how can that happen?
What if someone is focused on intentionally organizing activities so you can meet your neighbors? What if your apartment complex owners are working to help that happen? What if you can live in a community where people care about connecting, and not just about having a place to live?
Creating Caring Communities partners with apartment owners to place a caring community team in an apartment complex to help people get connected to one another. Interested in finding out more?
