The successful operation of a NewVistas community depends largely on the education and physical and mental health of its members. Optimizing the well-being of the youth, elderly, and disabled holds tremendous value to the community. The economic systems available within each community are designed to make quality services and goods of all kinds more available and affordable. Education, healthcare, and related services are given an even higher priority and are integrated into the community plan. The economic value of a parent contributing in their child’s school, or caring for an ailing in-law, is captured and properly accounted for. Effective systems are put in place to fairly assess when someone is a dependent in need—regardless of what their mental or physical condition may be. The community is enabled to care for those in need, and those in need are enabled to reach their greatest potential in contributing to their community.
