MAKING A DIFFERENCE

OUR WORK IS VITAL

  • We are being challenged in ways we have not known before.

  • Survival - Work - Family - Home - Food - Safety

  • Where is community with physical distance?     

  • We need each other.                         

  • Communities work best when the web of relationships include us all—the poor, elderly, and disabled side by side with the rich, young, and able-bodied.

  • The informal network of mutually beneficial relationships  defines community

  • Disabled people are often not included.

  • NQCA invites ordinary citizens to reach out and  include our disabled neighbors, and in doing so strengthens the web for us all.

WE ARE DIFFERENT THAN THE REST

  • NQCA recruits and supports unpaid advocates to be helpful friends to disabled people.

  • NQCA, through the relationships it supports, helps disabled people, their advocates, and the entire community as neighborly caring increases.

WE MAKE AN IMPACT

  • Through newsletters, presentations, and discussions, NQCA’s work invites others to call forth more neighborly caring in other communities.

  • Lessons from working with hundreds of people in caring relationships serve as a guide to others on the “how to” questions of initiating and supporting freely-given relationships.
