You’ve Gotta Have Friends is a grass roots initiative that aims to involve all citizens in creating welcoming communities where everyone belongs.
Loneliness and isolation are critical issues for many people. We help to break down barriers that keep people from experiencing a rich and rewarding life by:
· Intentionally noticing and mobilizing the gifts of individuals and community groups · Helpingcitizens to engage in new ways of building relationships · Empowering change and inspiring action towards an inclusive community · Helping people find socially valued roles in the community · Participating in events that raise awareness about the importance of belonging · Convening conversations that matter You’ve Gotta Have Friends brings people together in a variety of ways to share their experiences and to create connections. We believe community belongs to the people and that it takes every citizen to create strong and welcoming neighbourhoods. You’ve Gotta Have Friends is sponsored by:
