Organize your Neighborhood

At Neighborhood Resources Connection, it’s always about the South Bend neighborhoods. The NRC mission to support South Bend neighbors and their neighborhood associations starts at the beginning, as like-minded residents come together to start or strengthen a neighborhood through organization.

These resources are provided to help you and your fellow organizers get started.

Neighborhood Association Toolkit

The NRC Neighborhood Association Toolkit starts at the beginning, too. But it also offers plenty of other information on how to launch successful projects, manage group dynamics, work with elected officials, collaborate with other neighborhoods — all available to neighbors making South Bend a great place to live.

Register your Neighborhood Association or new organizing group

If you’ve never registered your association or you’re forming a new one, please consider registering here. Registration ensures that your neighborhood leaders are invited to NRC’s citywide Quarterly Roundtable meetings, that your neighborhood association is eligible to participate in the Block Party Grant program and other member benefits.

One-on-one or small-group assistance

NRC is a technical assistance provider for South Bend neighborhoods. We’re here to help you build a better neighborhood any way we can, so please let us know how we can support you along the way.

NRC can provide consultation, training for individuals or small groups at your location or ours, or even help with graphic design, web, and printing.

Contact NRC at (574) 287-0425 for more information.
