Synopsis: Fostering Connections, spotlights a unique, intergenerational community located on the abandoned Chanute Air Force Base in Rantoul, Illinois. Hope Meadows is one of a small number of communities around the nation based on the ‘intentional neighboring’ model specifically designed to support adoptive families, high-risk foster youth and seniors.

This short documentary tells the story of Micci Grainger – once a foster child herself and her struggle in bringing up both her biological and adopted children. With the support of her husband, Tim, and the “surrogate grandparent” seniors of the Hope Meadows community, the Grainger family works daily to break the vicious cycle of neglect and abuse, while the seniors are given opportunities to make a difference in their community and in the lives of the foster care children in their neighborhood.
