Engage in relationships & exchanges that are equitable.
Many members of our society, living in our communities, have the desire to live more fully, to connect with others having similar interests and who have a deep passion for helping those in need.
A Model Community is designed to be that outlet for anyone who is ready to step forward, to offer their skills, ideas and talents. Often these individuals have lived rich, full lives and search for an outlet due to changes in their families. There is a desire to connect with others and lessen loneliness. The opportunity to exchange these gifts for a living arrangement within a community that is comfortable, safe, has a governing process that is fair, considers everyone's opinions and boundaries, and sharing their resources and responsibilities, can only produce independent, happy and healthy communities. This environment can set a standard for creating a picture of successful, equitable exchange and demonstrate a better use of property and land.
