Neighborhood & Community Engagement

The Neighborhoods and Community Engagement program helps people of every age and background become more active in their neighborhoods.

The mission of the program is to increase resident social capital thereby increasing the capacity of neighborhood and community groups to problem solve and improve their neighborhoods. Staff provides coordination and technical assistance to existing neighborhood organizations and provides assistance in the preparation of neighborhood plans as may be requested by individual neighborhood groups. Assistance is also provided with starting new neighborhood groups.

The program helps individuals, groups and communities recognize their skills and assets, mobilize people to take action on their own behalf and connect them to appropriate resources so they can achieve positive results for their neighborhoods and communities.
