The power of language: Practice in a shared site
Presents the importance of the use of inclusive, non-stigmatizing language in a Generations of Hope Community. Through the transformative power of language, people of all ages create stories of caring relationships, of purposeful engagement, of continuity and commitment, of belonging. As these stories emerge, they become the foundation on which family and community integration is built. These stories are at the heart of what makes these shared sites work.
