Hello Neighbor - Sloane Davidson
What is a neighbor supposed to look like? Do we want them to appear a certain way? Or are they human beings that we welcome into our homes, people we rely on to share in our milestones or mourn with us in times of tragedy. So instead of asking what they should look like, the better question is: How should a neighbor be? Are they kind? Do they lend us a helping hand when we need them?
After moving from job to job, and city to city, Sloane went back to her hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to start Hello Neighbor. The nonprofit works to improve the lives of recently resettled refugee families, by matching them with dedicated neighbors to guide and support them in their new lives. Apart from working in impoverished villages in countries like the Congo, Guatemala and the Philippines, Sloane had a life changing Thanksgiving dinner with a Syrian family. In this episode, we hear Sloane’s journey as the Founder and CEO of Hello Neighbor, what she learned about the refugee experience and the simple acts we can do to make others feel more human.
