Episode 142: Hannah Gregory: Grief, Life, Love, Foster Care, and Building Community Through Neighbors

Hannah Gregory, Program Director of The Neighbors Project

Hannah Gregory, Program Director of The Neighbors Project, joins The 1 Girl Revolution Podcast to share her powerful life story and to talk about the phenomenal work she’s doing with The Neighbors Project. 

The Neighbors Project Is a community program designed to connect Neighbors who care with families and individuals who need support. The Neighbors Project sparked out of Hannah and her husband’s (Josh) foster care journey and their journey through life. Through their own life together they came to the realization that often the most powerful gift we can give another person is – our loving presence. Their hope is that with one friendship, one meal, one neighbor at a time – we can transform the world!

Josh and Hannah are foster parents and community advocates near Detroit who have a passion for seeing families thrive together. They are fierce advocates for reunification within the child welfare system and for empowering people, not systems, to do the good work of caring for and loving their neighbors. 


  1. We want to see families impacted by child welfare receiving tangible support so they can focus on healing and thriving together
  2. We want to see families in hard seasons who feel isolated finding help and friendship to equip their family to stay safely together
  3. We want to see neighbors growing in their capacity to love well as they learn to live in proximity and make their circle bigger
  4. We want to see caseworkers and community advocates breathing easier and finding hope when they can offer families a priceless resource: relationships
