Neighbors in Action mobilizes local residents to promote peace and safety. In every neighbor and every neighborhood, there are talents, resources, and strengths. These are assets for problem-solving and overcoming individual and communal challenges. Neighbors in Action (NIA) seeks to amplify what is already working and leverage those strengths in order to address community problems. Our strength-based approach does not ignore problems, but amplifies resilience and resourcefulness.
