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.
