Neighbors In Action



  • Legal Hand

    Legal Hand empowers community residents to support their neighbors with the legal information they need.

  • Make It Happen

    Make It Happen helps young men between the ages of 16 and 24 who have experienced violence acquire the tools necessary to overcome traumatic experiences.

If you're feeling down, there's help here. If you're bored, it's a positive place. Through Neighbors in Action, I learned to care for myself and gained the confidence to push for what I believe in.
Gariyana, 18 Youth Organizer, YO S.O.S.
