“Spreading around” networks

A lot of us take for granted our huge networks of supportive adults – people we can call when the car breaks down or your wallet is stolen or you’re running late to pick up a child from school and need back-up. Perhaps we grew up here in the Metro, and have a big family we can call on, or we’ve had a successful career here are connected with current and former colleagues. But for many people, those circles of support are not available, and there’s nobody to call for back-up. We all need networks of adults we can count on. Let’s spread out these networks and make sure everyone in our neighborhood has someone to call when help is needed.
