 Why should you help support Neighborhood Network – what does it do?

Neighborhood Network currently serves over 100 neighborhood groups, providing information, training and access to resources.  We work every day as a partner to help create a better community.  We see the possibilities and have the resources, connections and passion to help. 

 Because you don’t have to move to live in a better neighborhood.

 Neighborhood Network works very closely with the city departments, other governmental and non-governmental agencies and area resources providers to:

·         Help form new neighborhood groups or help existing groups be more effective and sustainable.

·         Provide training, tools and skills to help groups communicate, advocate, and build leaders and active participants.

·         Increase access to information, resources, collaborations and partnerships.

·         Help teach residents about crime prevention techniques.

·         Give people the knowledge and contacts to address other neighborhood issues like abandoned and unsafe buildings, garbage, rubbish and high weeds, or inoperable or abandoned vehicles.

·         Coordinate the successful Community Gardens program which grew to 43 gardens within Winnebago and Boone Counties.

·         Work together to make our neighborhoods, and our community, a better place to live, work and play.

 I look forward to seeing you on Thursday, February 2nd.  Please call me in you have any questions.

 Regards,

Cyndie Hall, Executive Director
