Safe, Just, and Self-Determined Neighborhoods


Connecting People, Strengthening Voices,

Leveraging Resources 

Our Community Engagement


Neighbors for Better Neighborhoods connects community leaders with the resources they need to become self-determine producers of sustainable community development. Our guiding principles are based on the Asset-Based Community Development framework.

Forsyth County has the highest rate of concentrated poverty out of all major urban North Carolina counties. Too often, institutions try to solve community challenges without resident input. Our organization provides community organizations with technical assistance, organizing support, learning and leadership opportunities. We facilitate community development from within neighborhoods. Developing and engaging community leaders is an important part of our commitment to our city. 

Our involvement with any project or collaboration in our city has a primary focus of bringing residents to the places where discussions and decisions are being made or in the process of being implemented. We believe this mission contributes to the realization of our vision of safe, just and self-determined neighborhoods.
