  • The Good Neighbor Mindset

    More than ever, hate has become a popular campaign in our nation. Dividing people and ultimately isolating neighbors, our communities are becoming places lacking a culture of care, concern, and connectedness. Together, we can change this by becoming good neighbors who make great neighborhoods. The mindset of a good neighbor:

    1. Connect. Introduce yourself and connect with others in your neighborhood. Say hello.

    2. Invite. Gather around a table and experience the spirit of community or invite people to something fun. Life is better together.

    3. Celebrate. When it comes to birthdays, anniversaries or milestone moments in the lives of others, cheer them on and don't miss out on congratulating them.

    4. Awareness. Keep your eyes and ears open. Stay attentive to the safety and security of the people and homes nearby. We are stronger together.

    5. Availability. When needed, show up to help and support others living around you.

    The spirit of a great neighborhood starts with good neighbors.

    National Good Neighbor Day, Ambassador

    I'm here as a volunteer to help advocate on behalf of National Good Neighbor Day.


    Hate has become a popular campaign in our nation. People feel powerless to stop it, but there is something we can do. I’m launching a movement to bring people together and create a culture of care, concern and connectedness at a grassroots level – in our neighborhoods. The movement is called National Good Neighbor Day on Sept. 28. When people connect with their neighbors, we chip away at hate and division and replace it with understanding and respect. National Good Neighbor Day inspires people to become good neighbors and challenges them to make our communities stronger one neighborhood at a time. Our coalition is growing, and we invite you to join us.



    Personally, I serve as the president of New Missions. I believe more than ever, our nation needs to see communities grow stronger together by being good neighbors. This starts with you and me — right where we live.
