Intergenerational consulting, training, and Intergenerational Dialogues have been used very successfully in dealing with disaster relief. We have been a part of disaster relief efforts for significant Missouri, Louisiana, and North Dakota floods; and we have been an important part of the recovery efforts after the devastating tornadoes in St. Peter and Comfrey, Minnesota. Our clients have included: FEMA; Lutheran Disaster Response; and State Disaster Agencies in North Dakota, Minnesota, Louisiana, and Missouri.
Past Intergenerational Dialogue topics have included: family violence • respect and responsibility • elder fear • gang violence • entitlements • disaster relief • community empowerment • communication • neighborhood safety • increasing productivity in the workplace • bridging racial & cultural differences. See our previous and future Intergenerational Dialogues and Events.
