You are invited! We need you!
Neighbor Up is a diverse network of people committed to Cleveland neighborhoods. The network is supported by Neighborhood Connections, a community building program.
What does Neighbor Up do?
- brings people together across lines of difference
- creates a web of collaboration and exchange
- and encourages residents from different neighborhoods, as well as institutional leaders, to work together to respond innovatively to the challenges that plague our communities.
There are now 1,152 card-carrying members with many more active in the network.
How does it work?
When Neighbor Up members gather, they use small activities — called practices — that prime the room for positivity, feed people’s energy, and unleash the capacity for creative solutions to issues that plague our communities. The result is greater civic engagement.
Watch this video to learn about the Make Art Talk Race practice that some members developed.

Teams are working on improving neighborhood health by lowering the rate of infant mortality and abating the hazards of lead paint in our neighborhoods; building community wealth; and creating meaningful places.
This is mission critical work for our city.
Meet people, share ideas and resources, and connect — across class, ethnic, racial, geographic and generational divides — on issues you care about.
We all have something to give. We need each other to thrive. Communities are stronger when we work together. There are no quick fixes to our community issues, but new options surface when more perspectives are at the table. That means Neighbor Up can be what you make it!
