Building Community for the 21st Century. ERIC Digest.
England, Joan T.
Community is a state of being together in which people lower their defenses and learn to accept and rejoice in differences among people. The characteristics of true community are true inclusivity; no one is exclusive or excluded. People are social creatures who desperately need each other not only for company but for meaning in their lives. Counselors are the "human concern providers" to their communities. (ABL)
