We believe that our differences are our strengths and that working in harmony is humanity’s natural state. We defend that all human beings desire security, to be respected and to be seen. Village ENGAGED has a mission to build and maintain a community where all feel welcome to thrive using age old tools of connection and compassion. Education, so factual information can crowd out misinformation. Communication, so we can build relationships within our community and remember human beings are all inherently good. Recreation, so we can feel the joy of our work. Philanthropy, so we can carry as we climb. And ceaseless curiosity, so that we never stop to judge, but instead to understand.
Village ENGAGED is centered around community education, communication, recreation & philanthropy. We hold fun and educational discussions, provide youth programming, share resources, provide a free Community Closet, bolster Hamburg Pride, and jump into action to organize a community response to help when an acute need is identified.
