Genuine concern for others.



Willingness to do something for others.



Enabling others to feel they can relate to you.



Establishing a meaningful connection with others.


How can you show Compassion?

  • You can power wash with a purpose your neighbor’s driveway or pavers!
  • Be a helpful neighbor – bring in their garbage cans.
  • You can offer to help with yard work.
  • You can give away items to those in need!
  • Welcome new neighbors with a thoughtful gift.
  • Ask your neighbors how you can pray for them – show them you care!

How do you become Available?

  • You can chat with your neighbors from your front porch or community center. Build community and relationships!
  • Try organizing a fun “Pet Meet” for dogs and their owners to socialize.
  • Know of a sick neighbor? Make homemade soup, a card, and a prayer for them.
  • Start a new habit of walking and praying in your neighborhood for health and community.
  • Want to go the extra mile? Try running errands for your neighbors, and show kindness and even generosity by declining their money!
