Generations of Hope Communities: An intergenerational neighborhood model of support and service

A Generations of Hope Community (GHC) is an intentionally created, geographically contiguous intergenerational neighborhood, where some of the residents are facing a specific challenge around which the entire community organizes. In this paper we discuss philosophical principles that ground GHCs, critical insights which have emerged from over a decade of experience with Hope Meadows (the first GHC), and the strategy used in GHCs known as Intergenerational Community as Intervention (ICI).
