The Great Turning, and Allies In Caring’s Role in Creating Life-Sustaining Communities
Ivette Guillermo McGahee
If you look for it, you can find evidence that our civilization is being reinvented all around us. Previously accepted approaches to healthcare, business, education, agriculture, transport, communication, psychology, economics, and so many other areas are being questioned and transformed. This is the second strand of the Great Turning, and it involves a rethinking of the way we do things, as well as a creative redesign of the structures and systems that make up our society.
Members of Allies In Caring will share the different ways this non-profit organization providing behavioral health services is participating in these emerging strands of a life-sustaining culture in South Jersey.
Bio: Ivette is the founder and CEO of Allies In Caring, a New Jersey nonprofit offering behavioral health services for under-resourced individuals living in poverty, immigrants and individuals with disabilities. Additionally, Ivette serves as a consultant in the design team for the NJ Public Health Institute, The Elevating Equity in NJ program, and currently, the “Jenga Council”, a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s advisory council that promotes health equity in NJ. Ivette’s experience as a Mexican-born child of deaf parents (CODA) and sister of two deaf siblings, has provided profound understanding of the potential for growth that lies within the hardships that are a part of the human experience.
