Welcome

In 2007, an alliance of residents, neighborhood and merchant associations, nonprofits and faithbased organizations, foundations and academic institutions was created around a simple mission, empowering the neighborhoods of San Francisco with the capacity to steward themselves to a resilient condition.  The alliance assumed the name “Neighborhood Empowerment Network” (NEN), and over these past years it has leveraged the immense resources and expertise within its ranks to create a ground breaking suite of tools resources and methodologies to advance resilience at the community level with a bottom up grassroots approach.

Vision 

Everyone has the right to live in a safe, clean, healthy, inclusive and economically resilient community. 

 

Mission 

Support in the empowerment of residents and communities with the capacity and resources to build strong resilient communities. 

Programs

The NEN implements programs to support communities as they build resilient neighborhoods. These programs streamline community access to organizations, programs, resources, and technical support. Check out our core programs below.
