-CONTINUE TO BUILD BELONGING
Commit to personal ways you can help build belonging throughout the community. Here are some ideas to consider:

Expand your circle. Make an effort to know and be known. Make conversation and meet new people. Encourage and support your children to get involved.

Be mindful of others. Make room for newcomers in your groups, at work, in neighborhoods, and places of gathering.

Keep learning. Visit the Sawyer Free Library and ask a librarian for book suggestions to dig deeper into creating a community of belonging.

Practice an attitude of acceptance and recognize that others have different ways of being, which don’t have to change you.

Volunteer & get involved in supportive non-profits like Wellspring House.
