A strong community benefits an individual, the community as well our society as a whole. People of all ages who feel a sense of belonging tend to lead happier and healthier lives. Strong communities create a more stable and supportive society. A community is generally thought of as a sense of cohesiveness among a group of people, a support system and a safe place to share and explore. The idea of community may simply come down to supporting and interacting positively with other individuals who share a common interest. Whether your interest is in the well-being of your neighborhood or the well-being of your global community, having an active role in a community has many healthy benefits.
