This community is an offshoot of Geneva Bay and has adopted many of their practices and structure. Each resident chooses a profession and is offered living quarters that best suit their needs. In Faith Harbor everyone picks their own work days and hours with the only requirement that they meet a production quota each week. This means if a person finishes their allotted work in two days, they can take five days off. Women with small children in need of supervision and elderly are given less strenuous job offers such as clothing detail, food prep, and administrative duties.
Regular Community Events:
- Daily food rationing
- Weekly Church Services
- Weekly production meetings
- Bi Monthly Community Meetings (Announcements and votes)
- Monthly security walk (every resident walks the perimeter to inspect the fence and repair as needed)
