COMMUNITY SUPPORT CIRCLE

CSC’s MISSION STATEMENT:
THE COMMUNITY SUPPORT CIRCLE IS BOTH A TASK FORCE AND A VIEW OF HUMAN NATURE. WE CHALLENGE THE COMMON BELIEF IN RUGGED INDIVIDUALISM AND SELFISHNESS, AND THE ISOLATIONIST VIEW OF THE HUMAN HEART. OUR SOCIETY TEACHES THAT IT IS APPROPRIATE TO REJOICE AND COMPLETE THINGS ALONE; ALSO THAT WE ARE WEAK WHEN WE NEED TO ASK FOR HELP.
HOWEVER, WE ARE A GROUP THAT ASSERTS AND GIVES SOME LIFE TO THE FUNDAMENTAL INTERCONNECTION AND INTERDEPENDENCE OF PEOPLE. OUR VIEW OF HUMAN NATURE IS THAT PEOPLE ARE NATURALLY CARING TOWARDS EACH OTHER, WHEN THE RULES OF SOCIETY ARE NOT SET UP TO REWARD DEALING WITH PEOPLE AS COMMODITIES TO BE BARTERED IN THE MARKET PLACE.
IN ITS SIMPLEST FORM, THE COMMUNITY SUPPORT CIRCLE’S MISSION IS TO BE OF HELP TO ONE ANOTHER. WE SEEK TO REMEDY NEED, MAKE REAL AND PALPABLE OUR CONNECTION, AND FIND THE JOY IN GIVING. WE FIND THAT ALIENATION WITHERS FOR BOTH SIDES IN THE GIVING PROCESS, AND MEANING RIPENS, WHEN HELP OF ANY KIND IS GIVEN IN A SUPPORTIVE, CARING WAY.
Founder & Co-Leader: Rhea Lewin-Geberer

    The sharing and shmoozing was excellent. It would be good to start the actual sharing a bit earlier so that people who have to leave before 11 PM can hear and participate in the whole meeting.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
