Better Together

"Participating in a community of action not only benefits the neighborhood as a whole but grows the individual participant as well."

- Better Together, page 65

Barna Group undertook this study to learn more about the types of people who are taking initiative in their communities in building a collaborative network – who gather, donate, serve, create, teach, mobilize and innovate, alongside other passionate neighbors, to meet needs around them.  


Alongside new research and data visualizations, Better Together includes: 

  • Profiles of different types of people who participate in volunteer groups and what drives them toward compassion and collaboration 

  • Details about how healthy groups form, communicate and grow 

  • Interviews with Gabe Lyons, Makoto Fujimura, Becca Stevens and a panel of faith and nonprofit leaders from across the U.S.
