The Good Neighbor Campaign is doing GOOD in the Hood!
WHAT IS THE GOOD NEIGHBOR CAMPAIGN? The GOOD NEIGHBOR CAMPAIGN is a community- based movement to empower and inspire community residents to create a safe neighbors on blocks in order to provide support to residents and opportunities for our youth.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE GOOD NEIGHBOR CAMPAIGN? The GOOD NEIGHBOR CAMPAIGN seeks to organize residents on a block-by-block basis to connect them with needed support from anchor institutions, like churches and community based organizations , in order to help them create and implement a vision for there own block. We help each other by providing opportunities for neighbors to share their gifts and talents with other community residents.
HOW DID THE GOOD NEIGHBOR CAMPAIGN DEVELOP? A coalition of community organizations groups, churches and residents, in partnership with EVERY BLOCK A VILLAGE, developed THE GOOD NEIGHBOR CAMPAIGN after conducting hundreds to residents interviews over the course of six months later year. Residents felt disconnected with one another with one another and talked about needing to feel connected in order to bring about lasting community change.
