Helpful Neighboring Websites


There are a number of active neighbors and organizations that are working to improve neighborhoods across the United States. So many great examples and websites that I have an entire blog post with regularly updated information. Check it out here.

Neighborhoods USA

Neighborhoods, USA (NUSA) is a national, non-profit organization committed to building and strengthening neighborhood organizations. Created in 1975 to share information and experiences used to build stronger communities, NUSA continues to encourage networking and information-sharing to facilitate the development of partnerships among neighborhood organizations, government, and the private sector for the ultimate goal of strengthening every neighborhood.

Hopeful Neighborhood Project

Imagine the possibilities. At the Hopeful Neighborhood Project we are helping everyday neighbors pursue the common good, right where they live.

Engaged Neighbor

You can help make your neighborhood clean, safe, and friendly by learning about and pledging to pursue the “Engaged Neighbor” principles. Learn more about this MU Extension program.

This event is designed for the following North Austin neighborhoods: Georgian Acres, Gracywoods, NACA, North Lamar, Quail Hollow, River Oaks, and Walnut Creek.

Placed for a Purpose

Your address is not an accident and neither is your neighbor's. Read the book, listen to the podcast, and discover ways to connect with your neighbors and neighborhoods.

Neighboring Live

Neighboring Life was founded by Jeff & Amy Meyer who LOVE to uncover the beauty of people’s stories and the richness of meaningful friendships that spring up in the neighborhoods where we live. We invite you and your household to imagine neighborhoods where every person belongs, where every person knows they matter and have a contribution to make, a story to share.


Five everyday ways to love your neighbor and change the world.  Five simple, straightforward practices that, if consistently lived out, can affect not just individual lives but your entire neighborhood and community—one person at a time.

Great Lakes Urban

At Great Lakes Urban, we’ve seen people in the place they live create new possibilities for themselves and their neighbors. We’ve seen neighbors take on challenges and solve them using their existing skills and resources. Great Lakes Urban builds the relationships and structures supporting residents as they determine their futures.

Neighboring Movement

We believe that an asset-based approach to neighboring can create lasting change in the world, reduce social issues and increase the quality of life for individuals, communities, and beyond. We achieve our “Big Idea” by living out relationship, abundance, and joy in our founding neighborhood and sharing what we've learned in simple, doable, and universal ways with individuals, churches, and civic organizations.
