Be a Welcoming Neighbor

...A community needs a soul if it is to become a true home for human beings. You, the people must git it this soul. - Pope John Paul II

The first step to creating a safe community environment for you and your family is to establish a trusting relationship with your neighbors. Go out of your way to get to know your neighbors. When someone new moves into your neighborhood, welcome them with a plate of cookies or just stop by to introduce yourself and say “Hello.”


There are lots of ways to be a welcoming neighbor. Sharing a treat or just saying “hello” are small ways to build rapport and friendship.

Step It Up:

Do you have a neighbor you don't get along with? Put aside your differences and hand-deliver them a plate of fresh cookies.

Keep It Simple:

When a new neighbor moves in, make an effort to welcome them to the neighborhood.
