OUR VALUES

.What can we produce that will increase well-being in the neighborhoods in which we live?

NEIGHBORHOODS CONNECT works to connect, support, and build healthy, flourishing neighborhoods.



NEIGHBORHOODS CONNECT is here to be the backbone for a collective impact effort that improves well-being in neighborhoods, and for implementation and support of "the Seven Functions that only effectively organized neighborhoods can provide." ***  


These functions are:

                               1.   Health

                               2.   Safety

                               3.   Environment & Resources

                               4.   Resilient Economy

                               5.   Local Food

                               6.   Socialization & Raising of Children

                               7.   Care-giving
