Purpose: “To Eliminate Suffering Caused by Poverty, Inequality, And Prejudice.”


Hands Across Time NM* promotes community investment in our most vulnerable populations. We seek to inspire, implement, and support, innovative social welfare practices to ensure that individuals at risk for, or who have experienced poverty, inequality and or prejudice, find lifelong family relationships in supportive, sustainable communities, which enable them to lead fulfilling and productive lives.

See our blog entry for example communities.


Hands Across Time is a project*, that seeks to eliminate suffering caused by poverty, inequality, and prejudice; through inspiring, building and operating fully sustainable intergenerational communities, where displaced children, elders, resident volunteers, foster/adoptive families and young adults who have ‘aged out’ come together with our organization to foster and maintain a supportive community that spans generations.

Our community will offer a variety of programs and services, including; but not limited to:

  • art
  • holistic living
  • sustainability
  • life skills training
  • financial education
  • access to holistic healthcare
  •  housing
  • support systems for transitional periods in life
  • animal therapy

One of our goals is to promote an environment where each member has a purpose, place, and value. We  also hope to  involve our surrounding community with interactive programs (The Janice Murch Chapman educational scholarship and entrepreneurial start up funds, educational programs, farming/CSA, festivals, farmers/artisan markets, holistic store and clinic, café and thrift store, yoga classes, conferences, etc.)
