New Community Vision is proud to announce a breakthrough–two ways to broaden your social life and your landscape of potential housing options.
We offer membership in a social club that is networked throughout the Chicago Metropolitan area. The network promises to be lively, resourceful, and neighborhood-oriented. Separately, we will maintain a database of useful information that is useful when looking for housing.
We are honored to showcase these innovations at the November 18th reception from 4 to 6 p.m. at Sacred Keepers Sustainability Lab. There is still time to register and I hope that you can join us. Please RSVP here.
Our mission, facilitating home sharing with people who like each other is based on our strategy of partnering with congregations and community groups to foster neighborliness, community spirit, and a willingness to actively shape our communities to sustainably serve and shelter us.
We are piloting this community building concept in the Chicago Metropolitan Area and envision it as a template that can be used anywhere in the country.
New Community Vision, LLC is here to educate the public about the rich potential of a cooperative approach to enliven a community and galvanize resources.
We cultivate relationships with congregations and community groups, host events, articulate the vision, develop and test the template, and drum up support.
