Generations of Hope

A way of life that makes a difference

Across the country, new intergenerational communities are finding creative ways to enfold the most vulnerable among us into networks of care and support. We're helping.

Connecting generations
to address social needs

How can older adults, friends, and caring neighbors help solve some of our most challenging social problems?

In the “intentional neighboring” model of community living, everyone, including the most vulnerable, gives and receives care and support.

Coming together
to build community

Generations of Hope brings together partners and advisors from a range of disciplines including architecture, finance, human services, and academia to advance the model of intentional intergenerational living, and to support new “intentional neighboring” initiatives.
