Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Mission : Strengthening the generations by bringing them together in a Therapeutic, Interactive, Intergenerational Neighborhood (TIIN).
Hope & A Future is the first Therapeutic Interactive Intergeneration Neighborhood (TIIN) looking at the two fastest growing segments of our population: seniors and young families in poverty. We are creating a staffed neighborhood setting where the needs and strengths of both populations are addressed, (encouraging a helping tradition where each group helps while being helped). The setting will include housing for healthy and frail seniors of mixed income levels and affordable rental housing for young families interested in mentoring and support. It will include both indoor and outdoor community spaces where healthy, intergenerational relationships can be established around shared activities and interests. Staff includes health care professionals, some of whom live onsite, an art and activity therapist, and, when the complete model is built, a family life education specialist. Volunteers are an integral part of this interactive, community-based model.
