The Neighborhood Empowerment Network is a coalition of organizations from all sectors which are committed to supporting communities becoming safer, cleaner and healthier places to live and work. The NEN is honored to have Neighborland join this illustrious group.
Born in the communities of New Orleans as they work together to rebuild their great City, Neighborland is now ready to bring its clean and simple platform for local idea generation to San Francisco.
Over the last few months Dan Parham, founder of Neighborland, had been working with the NEN team to learn more about culture of our neighborhoods and how they share and build community around great ideas. With this input they have already begun to fine tune the site in an effort to meaningfully contribute to the work of our community leaders. In the coming weeks we hope to announce several projects that Neighborland will be supporting our communitiesâ€™ efforts.
For now, visit their site – post an idea and share with your neighbors what you want in your neighborhood.
