The Neighborhood

The Neighborhood is a community engagement organization, based in the Washington, DC area. With the plethora of social injustices in underserved communities, the mission of The Neighborhood is to organize civic engagement activities that rebuild and strengthens underserved communities. We aim to work with engaged community members, homeless individuals, urban youths, and local organizations in order to bridge together hope between community members and their neighborhoods. Our goal as an organization is to create stronger, sustainable communities through our programs and special initiatives. We aim to achieve those goals by (1) creating educational materials and identifying educational opportunities for youth with limited access to these resources (education), (2) beautifying the natural environments within these neighborhoods (environment), and (3) providing opportunities for community members to be engaged in issues that impact their community (democratic governance).
