A Place To Belong

Every person needs a home - that's a basic necessity.  You can't maintain a family, get a job or add value to society without one.
Every one needs a community; people that accept you for who you are as one of their own.  It's community connections that empower us to work together, to help a neighbour, to work on shared solutions or advocate with a voice that resonates.
And society needs each and everyone of us at our best.  We can't change who we are to make better an economy that is designed to cull the weak, but we can co-design the system to empower strong individuals for a strong society.
The only way forward is to grow together on common ground.  It has always been thus.
