The purpose of Neighbors for Better Neighborhoods (NBN) is to strengthen neighborhoods in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County by supporting a wide range of community-based initiatives.
NBN believes that long term change in communities only happens when residents participate in creating solutions. For that reason, NBN seeks to support neighborhood groups and encourage resident-led problem solving, by providing technical assistance& organizing support, learning & leadership opportunities, along with grassroots grants for great ideas that promote growth and development in neighborhoods.
NBN is a public non-profit organization, created in 1991 by the Winston-Salem Foundation. The organization is dedicated to connecting people, strengthening voices, and leveraging resources with community in order to create safe, just, and self-determined neighborhoods.
The ongoing work of NBN is generously supported by
