Neighbors for Better Neighborhoods

Vision: NBN seeks to strengthen neighborhoods in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County NC 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.

Impact: Through the ‘Organizers Circle’, and the ‘Neighborhood Network’, community members and organizers connect with one another, attend biweekly tutorials, workshops, and community potlucks. The Neighborhood Network currently has over 200 members, who have helped to build the capacity of many local businesses.
