"Neighboring Toolkit: A Guide to Implementing Neighboring and Its Asset-Based Community Development Principles"

The Neighboring model of community engagement is fundamentally grounded in under-resourced resident empowerment and engagement -- residents drive community change by taking ownership and responsibility for creating safe and supportive neighborhoods.

This toolkit, produced by the Points of Light Institute, provides a broad range of tools and links to resources for organizations seeking to bring “neighboring” into a community and integrate it into existing programming. The toolkit is designed to inspire, equip and mobilize more nonprofit organizations to see their most challenged communities as places of promise -- places where resident skills, talents and desires are seen as wealth on which to capitalize in order to create sustained, lasting change.
