Neighborhoods everywhere are taking a leadership role in advancing their resilience. Communities can reduce the impact of disasters on their residents, key local organizations, and businesses by developing local action plans outlining mitigation, preparedness and response strategies.
The Neighborhood Empowerment Network (NEN) developed the Empowered Communities Program (ECP) to bring together government, nonprofit, academic, and private sector agencies to work side by side with neighborhood stakeholders to strengthen their community’s ability to successfully prepare for and recover from disasters.
The NEN implements programs to support communities as they build stronger, more resilient neighborhoods. These programs streamline community access to organizations, programs, resources, and technical support. See below for a full list of our programs!
San Francisco is a city that truly cares about the resilience, safety, and well being of its neighborhoods. NEN is fortunate enough to partner with a plethora of nonprofit organizations, businesses, and city agencies that provide helpful resources available to San Francisco communities. NERT, SF FIND, and SF72 are just some of the numerous programs that support San Francisco neighborhoods in their journey of resilience.
