In Neighbors: The Power of the People Next Door , author Brenda Krause Eheart tells the story of Hope Meadows, the first intergenerational planned community in which seniors commit to intentional neighboring as a way to provide support to families seeking to adopt children out of foster care. Eheart was impacted not only by the children in foster care who were failed by existing systems of care, but also by her mother who lived in a memory care facility for the last years of her life; by the struggling families she worked with, whose poverty was the baseline for every other indignity in their lives; by the daughter of a dear friend who lost her battle with mental illness, and by the young, nonverbal adult with profound autism whose primary companionship beyond his aging parents are paid care providers.
Across a career spanning over 30 years, there are many more. In Hope Meadows, Eheart imagined a solution that could help us all—then and now—creating a radical new approach to solving social problems by transforming the idea of an old-fashioned, close-knit neighborhood into a purposeful intervention and ultimately a way of life for everyone. Neighbors tells the stories of Hope Meadows residents as they unfolded over nearly two decades, stories that chronicle the profound ways in which three critical shifts in thinking—changing how we view family, how we view vulnerability, and how we view older adults—informed their relationships, and transformed their lives.
Pervasive stress and angst in our culture have awakened a hunger in all of us for good news stories. Neighbors addresses this cultural longing for meaning and hope in a complex world, and it provides readers with the insights and tools necessary to make a positive difference around the issues of their own lives. It is a timely book, focusing on the need for all people to be active makers of change, and it is a hopeful book, offering a prescription for bringing ordinary people together to address our most complex social problems by doing what government, business, and social services were never designed to do—foster caring relationships.
But Eheart's book is no fantasy: it provides a credible vision of the lost and perhaps squandered power of everyday people to unite us and make us whole. Previous page. Date de publication.

Brenda Eheart is a formidable visionary who puts her understanding of research and best field practices into action to benefit vulnerable populations. In simple terms, she dedicates her expertise, time and energy to actually making the world a better place, especially for those in need of a helping hand as they maneuver broken systems and systemic injustices. In Neighbors: The Power of the People Next Door, Brenda shares lessons learned from decades of work on behalf of others, including children in the care system and seniors.
Importantly, this book also boldly ventures into mapping out some pathways for those dedicated to helping others to create a more hopeful and caring future for all. We have underestimated, underutilized, and too often completely ignored the importance of the special gifts, talents, experiences, and capacity to care that ordinary people through neighboring possess in helping to address adversities that make us vulnerable.
We have forgotten that what gives our life its deepest significance and meaning are not professional services, but the caring relationships we make with family, friends, and neighbors. Gift it to others. Then host or join a conversation about using this gem as a launching pad to a more humane world.
We thrive together. Mollie Marti, Worldmaker International. This book describes how neighborhoods built on diversity and intention can begin to solve the social problems that are pervasive in every corner of our country.
Nextdoor Holdings, Inc. Devise en USD. It suddenly drops to 2. Something doesn't look right here. Seems to be a lot of hostility to " is an investment year" - "Vinod wants me to think in decades" and "the stock will take care of itself" spin from Sarah Friar. Sounds like people stuck in the stock, just hoping for an updraft to give them a less painful exit. Will see what kind of earnings they report today; I think this stock could be a strong performer in the future.
I posted earlier about the volume today, but can't seem to find it now. Total volume for the day was 6. I'd love to know what the short interest is, if anyone has that info. I can see on Etrade that it's hard to borrow now, which I believe usually means high short interest relative to the float. Because of the risk involved — it's unclear in their early stages which startups are going to be successful — they may lose all of that investment.
