“The boys are back, one showed up and the other was found and kept safe by a nice couple. I’m so grateful for this sweet nook in the world… such amazing people who really know how to come together and support each other. Thank you to all who helped spread the word and bring my boy back! Much love.”

Do your neighbors know how to come together and support each other? Practice makes perfect. Organize a block party, multi-home yard sale, or a winter potluck. Or use your local FPF to convene a group to work on a community project of your choosing. Towns and neighborhoods with rich social connections from this kind of activity tend to be better places to live and are more resilient when hard times arrive.
