A community is a place where people live, work, and play together. A community also includes a diverse set of people who have joined together through a common interest or goal. Communities will create feelings of fellowship based on these particular interests, goals, or other shared characteristics. In all communities, there are not only people who interact daily, but also the buildings that meet the needs of those people including homes, businesses, playgrounds, schools, and grocery stores. There are important community helpers, such as police, firefighters, teachers, dentists, chefs, and more. All the people within the community work together to ensure the wellbeing of each other – safety, health and happiness.
