Project Description:

Our United Villages (OUV) is a local non-profit organization founded on the belief that every person can make a positive difference in their community. We believe that neighborhoods are healthier and happier when each person is valued. OUV invites everyone in a neighborhood to Neighborhood Conversations, where they provide facilitation, food, and necessary accommodations for 2 ½ hour long discussions designed to encourage neighbors to share their hopes and ideas with each other.
