What Does Community Mean to You?

“We all carry forth our lives in the context of others and building a community means having a sense of your place within those that are important to you and around you. Most of us are part of many communities and it gives us an anchor; it gives us a way to trust and to be able to make things happen that we couldn’t make happen on our own.

"What community means to me is unity, people that come together, you don’t necessarily have to be family just people who came together and work towards a goal or just encourage each otherI would say that we all have different sets of skills that we use and different ideas and we kind of bring that together. We just have a very spontaneous community here."

“I think that the community means that people come together and help each other when they need help and see the needs of other people in the community as well.”

"I think a community is of different races, different cultures coming together for the shared goal of living together and making like much better."
