Help from local Villages
Shirley recounts how Villages, which can be used as resources, embrace “neighbors helping neighbors” mission.
I grew up in a village, in the country and it was neighbors helping neighbors. Whatever you had and you didn’t need or wanted to share and someone else needed that then it was “I give to you, you give to me,” and that’s the way it was. So, basically, it was neighbor helping neighbor and, in essence, it’s senior neighbors helping senior neighbors.
