Neuro Diverse Living Announces the Launch of Their New Brand Name, Front Porch Cohousing: A Neuro-Inclusive Community by NDL

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. -- Front Porch Cohousing is excited to announce the launch of their new brand and the inspiration behind that change. As a cohousing community of private homes clustered around shared space, Front Porch Cohousing will intentionally design spaces to create opportunities for those with and without neuro or cognitive disabilities to build meaningful and lasting relationships. A community where the support, encouragement and assistance of others will provide a safe and prosperous environment for all who live there.

The launch date for Front Porch Cohousing is January 18, 2022, and we expect our new inclusive, diverse communities to become thriving assets across Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Front Porch Cohousing: A Neuro-Inclusive Community by NDL believes the best way to deliver on our vision is by providing a sense of belonging as we create authentic and vibrant spaces that are not just houses, but homes for adults experiencing neurological disorders. Our homes will be designed to bring a sense of neighborhood while providing hope and peace of mind to the families and friends who support these neurodiverse adults, knowing their loved ones are in a community which will empower them.

We believe we can accomplish our vision through our cohousing model by creating a nostalgic setting from a time when neighborhood kids played until the streetlights came on and people visited on their front porches; a time when neighbors openly supported each other. As we shift to our new brand, we welcome you to Front Porch Cohousing: A Neuro-Inclusive Community by NDL.

"I'm encouraged about the work Front Porch Cohousing is doing in the community to address the critical shortage of neuro-inclusive cohousing options for adults with autism, assuring they will never live alone or isolated," said Jim Brexler, President & CEO Doylestown Health Network.

"With there being such a significant need for housing for people with disabilities in the Lehigh Valley, I'm thrilled to see the efforts and leadership that Front Porch Cohousing is making in creating inclusive and supportive cohousing options and opportunities," said Seth Hoderewski, Director of Transition Services, Lehigh Valley Center for Independent Living.

This Startup Wants to Get People Talking Again!

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- A new Arizona company, JabberYak, is on a mission to engage people with common interests using their ice breakers products, including customized T-Shirts, event badges, name tags, and office name plates designed to ignite meaningful, face-to-face communication without relying on personal devices.

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States, affecting more than 40 million adults*. During the pandemic, about four in ten adults in the U.S. reported symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorder. As things start to open post-pandemic, many people are experiencing even more anxiety when thinking about getting back into a social routine after isolating for so long. (*Citation: see link below.)

One area that is most concerning to people is the socialization that comes with returning to the office or events. Many professionals haven't seen their coworkers in over a year and those that are new to the company will be meeting their peers in person for the first time. When you are in the office, you're expected to connect with new people, and it can be difficult to navigate the flow of conversation.

JabberYak is founded by two Scottsdale-based women. Gail Levinthal is a former event planner who immigrated from South Africa in the 1990s, and Shideh Doerr is an entrepreneur and first generation Persian American. The two women developed JabberYak after seeing how difficult it was for those around them to connect with others, especially in large group settings such as corporate and singles events, holiday parties and even family reunions. While on a cruise with her family, Levinthal noticed how many people stopped to talk to her son because of the college shirt he was wearing. She saw that people were more willing to connect if they had a common interest.

The duo connected with serial entrepreneur and investor, Mack Baniameri and launched the JabberYak products in June 2021.

"The pandemic disrupted our lives in such a way that going back to a pre-covid routine can be intimidating," said Gail Levinthal, co-founder and CEO of JabberYak. "It's natural to feel anxious about the world opening up again, but with the right tools in place, the transition can be smooth and seamless. Knowing the interests of the people around you before the first word is even spoken can ease social anxiety and lead to more quality, meaningful conversations."

JabberYak's platform enables individuals to select their top seven personal interests that give insight into who they are. The selected interests then get printed on customized items that can be worn to work, meetings, events and displayed in the office. JabberYak products ultimately create a fun atmosphere, eases social interaction, build relationships, and improve the level of engagement with conference attendees, co-workers or customers.

JabberYak also offers an analytics dashboard to organizers prior to an event, providing valuable insight into who will be attending.

Sales4Roofers Enhance Customer Experience with Their Covid-Free Roofing Estimate Online Service

HAWTHORNE, N.J. -- The Sales4Roofers team continues to push boundaries in the global roofing industry by providing solutions that help roofers engage their customers - existing and potentials, better, while also ensuring homeowners have a seamless experience. In a related development, Sales4Roofers has continued to enhance the experience of homeowners through their Covid Free Roofing Estimate Online solution, enabling them to get the cost of services and visualize what the roof will look like after completion, without leaving the comfort of their homes.

"Covid had put an increased demand for our service, Homeowners love an online estimate appointment!" said Sean Mulkean, Homeowner Appointment Manager at Sales4Roofers. "We expect the number of online estimates we provide to rise close to 1500 in 2022."

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are over 139 million housing units in the U.S. as of 2019, revealing that there are a lot of homes that potentially need a roof (*note: see link to citation below). The figures indicate an increasing demand for roofing solutions amidst the emergence of thousands of service providers from different parts of the world. Despite the amazing figures from the market, consumers still struggle to access quality solutions due to either exorbitantly-priced services or unreliable roofing companies, with the Covid pandemic further worsening the situation. However, Sales4Roofers aims to change this narrative by helping homeowners get accurate estimates of roofing services to enable them to effectively prepare and make informed decisions.

The free roofing estimate online allows homeowners to get quotes in less than 30 minutes through a hassle-free appointment with roofing specialists from the Sales4Roofers team. The service comes with an enhanced Roof Simulator to allow customer see what the house looks like after completing the project.

Sean adds, "This is our biggest advantage for Homeowners, they love to pick and choose colors and instantly see what the roof looks like!"

Other benefits of the solution include a detailed explanation of the installation process, warranties, and price guarantees, simulation of the look of the roof with the chosen shingles, measurements done with state-of-the-art aerial measurement tool, and no sales pressure as customers are not required to pay any money at the appointment. Homeowners also get a complete estimate presentation in PDF for reference.

The launch of the solution is particularly useful, considering the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on the roofing industry, especially in getting estimates from roofers, due to restrictions and adherence to safety protocols.
