2017-2018 Program Review Report

The past two years have been one of NRC’s most active and impactful periods in recent memory. This report, published in February 2019, shares the programs, strategies, and impacts that NRC has offered to South Bend neighborhood organizers in 2017-2018.

Much more than a typical impact report, it describes the differences that NRC’s programs have made in South Bend neighborhood organizations and captures the larger scope of what NRC has done to achieve these impacts. Not just the what, but the why, when, and how.

About NRC

The Neighborhood Resources Connection (NRC) is a nonprofit organization that works exclusively for South Bend neighborhoods and neighborhood organizations. The NRC vision is one we share with our South Bend neighbors. Tree-lined streets, gardens and green spaces, a diverse mix of welcoming homes and neighbors we know. A safe community for neighbors to walk and chat, and for kids to ride bikes and play in the nearby park. A prosperous community where we invest our time and talents, share our gifts and show our pride in South Bend’s future by getting involved.

NRC: Neighbors building better neighborhoods

The NRC wants to empower and engage community leaders in every city neighborhood, and create the connections that keep South Bend thriving and strong. We see neighbors, faith-based groups, local businesses and schools communicating and collaborating on programs. Working together to solve problems. Developing grassroots leaders and celebrating with each other in vibrant and healthy neighborhoods.

The NRC programs offer technical assistance, training scholarships, and small grant initiatives designed to engage, educate, empower, and energize neighbors to reinvent their neighborhoods. So whether you want to start a neighborhood association or nurture an existing one by throwing a Block Party, the NRC is your go-to resource for building community.

The NRC can also help you file for 501(c)3 status or strengthen your organization, and offers a limited Technical Assistance grant program for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) eligible programs

In addition to the Block Party grant program, we can help you to develop longer-term projects to encourage neighborhood engagement and collaboration, and join with neighbors at the NRC-sponsored Roundtables or leadership workshops. You can check the list of other NRC initiatives here.

Neighborhood representatives along with City, Council, and Institutional volunteers serve as the Board of Directors.
