ConnectAbility Inc, in partnership with Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities, has created the “Meet Your Neighbor Project.” This community-based project teams “listeners” of all abilities who interview local residents and collect stories.
Meet Your Neighbor is a Real Communities Project led by ConnectAbility. Our goal is simple: to get to know our neighbors and bring people of all abilities and backgrounds together through the sharing of gifts and talents right here in our community!
Here are some quotes from our neighbors:
“I like how there’s lots of opportunity to serve here. There’s lots of opportunity to love on other people.”
“I think it’s so important to understand others and be tolerable and loving and respectful despite the differences. Being respectful of each other and their thoughts and opinions and thoughts while building community”
“The first thing I like about living here is all of the things they do on the square. Last night was trick or treating and I love all of the Christmas lights and gold rush and the parade and opening day for baseball. Those little things are what makes this place Home.”
“One of the gifts discovered in this project, is people can share their knowledge to each other making the world a better place. Another gift is they can share their own life experiences, helping people to better understand each other.”
