Saw a very interesting piece on PBS NewsHour tonight about an intergenerational neighborhood -- Bridge Meadows, Portland, OR -- where families with foster kids and low-income seniors live in this planned community and help each other. The seniors agree to volunteer with the foster kids for 10 hours a week in return for subsidized low-cost housing. www.bridgemeadows.org

We have one of these in our area. It's a beautiful setting with many housing units well designed and surrounded by hills. My dear friend, a writer who passed away a year ago, did many wonderful things with the kids. The model seems to work really well.
