The Good Neightbor Policy Issue Date: 04-02-2000

Cool Spots imageSome people travel the world to help poor people in other countries. Pretty inspiring, huh? But you don't have to travel far to make a big difference in your community. Catch the volunteering bug at the Kids Next Door site at www.hud.gov/kids. You'll meet kids who care, just like you, with great ideas for how to help others. One girl got a group together to make quilts for homeless people. A church group, a school or one kid can make a difference. Check out the Kids Volunteer! links to find out how you can get involved in your own neighborhood. You can help build a house, make some new friends and make the world a better place. Kids Next Door is a great place to start.
