The Neighborhood Projects, a network of neighborhood-based prevention projects, involve residents, families, and resources from the community to assist families to reach their full potential. The goal is to strengthen families and build strong neighborhoods. The Neighborhood Projects each have a Community Facilitator who works with community residents within an asset-based community development framework to create more support resources for families; to increase access to services by engaging community partners in the coordination of services; and to bring services closer to the people who need them. Staff also work to enhance resources by reducing duplication and encouraging community partners to work together to address local needs. All of the services and activities are endorsed by community residents but guided by research on the development of protective factors in parents and/or developmental assets of youth.
