"Every town, city, suburb in America needs a place for our citizens to retreat to when the American Dream hasn't exactly worked out for them. This can happen to any of us. Imagine the least that would honor you as a human being until you're ready to plug in again. A place of refuge, to dry out, to learn work skills, and to get the confidence you need to succeed. Andrew's village model and this book will help you learn how to do just that."
"The vision to create a living place of vitality, safety, and human scale is an indomitable urge that likely resides in all people. That said, Opportunity Village, supported mightily by Andrew Heben, has taken the lead in demonstrating the remarkable inspiring effects and healing power of such a vision in action. The idea that a group of people can undertake democratic processes in such a way that they repair themselves and create a sustainable expression of place will be of interest to everyone."
"A very pragmatic approach that was inspirational to getting people in our community to see what could and should be done."- Kitty Piercy, mayor of Eugene, OR "Every town, city, suburb in America needs a place for our citizens to retreat to when the American Dream hasn't exactly worked out for them.

This book also contains sample templates for codes of ethics & blueprints for tiny villages, while clarifying the reasons as to why some things might work in one place and not another. This is key reading material for this emerging genre of American activism. Instead of leaving me with vague ideas of what might be better in our political and social landscape, it left me feeling enabled to actually instigate concrete change in my community, and our group has already met for the first time to discuss a plan of action.
