NCI Neighbors Up


Last year, NCI launched Neighbor Up to focus more purposefully on community building and engagement to encourage successful neighborhoods that go beyond the development of physical spaces. So far, we have launched Neighbor Up DC (a citywide network) as well as Neighbor Up Park View (around the Park Morton development) and Neighbor Up Marvin Gaye (around the Lincoln Heights/Richardson Dwellings development). The citywide network also often convenes in the Northwest One area, and many residents from Northwest One participate. Click below for to watch a video from  the monthly events that residents and community members have been leading called “parties with a purpose.”
