Resilient Homes & Hubs is an exciting new model that takes a community-based approach to help transform our homes, neighborhoods, and communities into vibrant, regenerative places. Our vision is to create a network of demonstration sites comprised of homes, schools and neighborhood centers that are better prepared for community resilience, natural disasters, climate change and other stresses in our community. The Resilient Homes & Hubs Initiative is a collaboration between the Norcal Resilience Network & Daily Acts.
What is a Resilient Home? Daily Acts’ vision of a Resilient Home is a water saving, energy conserving, waste reducing, food producing, pollution preventing, health giving, and regenerative sanctuary for its inhabitants. A resilient home nourishes self, family, community, and nature and comes in all shapes and sizes whether you rent or own, are living in an apartment, mobile home or a single-family home. Do you have a Resilient Home or are you in the process of creating one? Then we hope you will join us for a gathering to learn more about this exciting new program, share successes from your own experiences and discuss opportunities on how we can expand our models and build more resilience in our county.
