Neighbor Up

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.

What does Neighbor Up do?

Our organizing premise is that de-humanizing systems are reinforcing and exacerbating the fear and isolation that diminish us as humans and divide us as a community. We cultivate environments that:

  • bring people together across lines of difference
  • create a web of collaboration and exchange
  • and encourage 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 2,000 card-carrying members of Neighbor Up working to improve the quality of life in our city and make change towards a more just, equitable and inclusive Greater Cleveland.

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.

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!
