Neighborhood Empowerment Network – San Francisco

In 2007, an alliance of residents, neighborhood and merchant associations, non profits and faith based organizations, foundations and academic institutions was created around a simple mission, empowering the neighborhoods of San Francisco with the capacity to steward themselves to a resilient condition.  The alliance assumed the name of the Neighborhood Empowerment Network (NEN) and over the last six years it has leveraged the immense resources and expertise within its ranks to create a ground breaking suite of tools resources and methodologies to advance resilience at the community level with a bottom up grass roots approach.
