Your donation will help Hope & A Future create a new care model. We are creating a Therapeutic Interactive Intergeneration Neighborhood or TIIN, strengthening the generations by bringing them together. Our first model is aimed at helping seniors and young families interested in helping each other. Seniors and young families in poverty are the two fastest growing segments of our population in the United States. We believe that they are capable of helping each other and that everyone can help while being helped if we create a setting that makes this a viable option! So we are building housing and creating a staffed neighborhood where that can happen.
Plans are in the works to develop independent housing for seniors and young families interested in mentoring and support to move forward in life. These homes will include a connected community space where more services and fun will be available, including intergenerational day care and fun.
Hope & A Future is blessed by volunteer support from hundreds each year as well as financial donations to help us take the next steps as we develop this model in a green, faith-based setting. Your donations will help us build the TIIN model. Once our buildings are built and mortgages paid down, this model will be sustainable and at that point, donations will be used to build the next TIIN. How exciting is that?! A new approach to old problems? Or maybe it’s an updated older approach to seemingly intractable societal problems. Please help us offer hope for the future by joining us to develop something new!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you!
