NBN is a community capacity building organization and neighborhood support organization (NSO).  We work with neighborhoods and community based organizations to support leadership development and increase the possibility of a community to create sustainable and progressive change. NBN celebrates and utilizes the assets of individuals in a community by fostering an environment where community members work collaboratively to achieve a collective community vision.  As NBN enters its twenty-fifth year, its Board of Directors and staff is more dedicated than ever to fulfilling its mission.
