WELCOMES YOU

Building community: one relationship - two people - at a time

 

During the COVID-19 crisis we are working from home.
Practice physical distancing not social distancing.

We will continue to foster friendships, two people at a time.

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.

Thank You!

Everyone at North Quabbin Citizen Advocacy would like to extend a HUGE thank you to those who helped make our drive through lasagna meal a success.

Thank you to Lisa and her crew for everything they do. Thank you to those who helped in the kitchen, handing out meals, and keeping the cars moving through the parking lot.

With the support of the Athol Congregational Church Mission Team and everyone who purchased a meal, you make it possible for us to continue to support people with mental handicaps or disorders. It was one of the most successful fundraisers we have ever had.
