Social Capital

Humans are social creatures – we live in community. Our social networks provide so much value that they are sometimes called “social capital”. A strong social support network can be critical to help you through the stress of tough times; the lack of social support can lead to isolation and loneliness.

  • What does social capital look like? A coffee break with a friend, a chat with a neighbor, a phone call to a relative, a visit to a house of worship or volunteer work are all ways to develop and foster relationships with others.
  • MAHUBE-OTWA works with individuals and families providing relationship-based coaching and emotional support to help you build your network of social capital.
