Where's My Village?: Community is the Original Village Fortune Reinvent

    • Business

In today's Where's My Village? we are exploring another pillar that's been supporting families and their kids for a long time - the community. 
In the final episode of the series, Fortune's Ellen McGirt returns to explore how we can create community in a country that would rather we not.
This episode features the story of Fela Barclift and Little Sun People, a childcare center Barclift founded in 1980 to serve and strengthen the Brooklyn community it’s proud to call home.
Before we get to Little Sun People, we hear from Julia Gutierrez, a mom and infant mental health advocate from rural Michigan. Gutierrez describes how her family came together to help raise her two children, creating an invaluable support system that helped her through some tough times.
And we hear from Mia Birdsong, the author of How We Show Up: Reclaiming Family, Friendship and Community, about what is currently separating us from the human need for community and how she reconnects to it in her own life.
Thank you for coming on this journey with us over these five episodes of Where’s My Village?  We’re proud to have brought to you the stories of people who are working to make childcare accessible for all of us. And we know we have only scratched the surface of what’s out there...until next time, take good care of yourselves and each other! 
Where's My Village? is written, produced and reported by Alexis Haut. Nicole Vergalla is our editor.
