About Generations of Hope

  Our purpose

To cultivate the potential of intentional intergenerational community living to help vulnerable people build better futures.


  Our work

Generations of Hope offers consulting and technical services to help organizations conceptualize, plan, and expedite the creation of new intergenerational communities based on the “intentional neighboring” model. More specifically, we provide:

  • technical assistance and consulting to initiatives that wish to adapt our model of intentional neighboring and purposeful intergenerational community living,
  • coordination to support collaborative interaction among site leaders and partners,
  • thought leadership to guide and support the expansion of the concept of intentional neighboring in addressing the challenges facing vulnerable people.

We do this work primarily through one-on-one consultations and workshops; ongoing research and publications including white papers, journal articles, blogs, guidelines; and the building of strategic partnerships.
