Sarah Kobos explores in Be a Better Neighbor, Build a Better Neighborhood the many ways each of us right now can make that first step towards creating a better neighborhood to live in.

As she says:
Maybe it’s time to flip those habits, get outside, and meet the people who live nearby. Let's put the neighborliness back in neighborhoods

Introduce yourself. Be respectful. Keep an eye out for each other. Check in on old folks. Tutor a kid. Dog sit. Assume the best. Chip in and help when you recognize a need. And remember that the word "community" means we’re all in this together.
