Generations of Hope Communities: Augmenting social services with neighborhood care

In this paper, we elaborate on the GHC model, beginning with a brief overview of the vulnerable populations that could be supported by these communities, followed by a discussion of community connectedness, and of key strategies and practices of GHCs. We then discuss the unique role and unconventional nature of professional staff practices in a GHC and how these lead to a new kind of organizational capacity that can augment conventional social services by aligning them with neighborhood care.
