"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.

Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has"

Government is a slow and tedious process. While it often includes citizen and neighborhood involvement, non-governmental, private organizations have created movements and interesting groups which can create positive change in our cities and towns.

I am fascinated by the way groups are created and how they influence public decision making. This blog merely recognizes them and forwards the description of these groups from their own websites.

When neighbors start talking, good things happen.

Build a stronger neighborhood with your neighbors to stay informed and share useful local information.

Look out for each other and send updates to keep the neighborhood safe.

Find a great babysitter or trusty dentist. Borrow a ladder or sell that old bookcase.

A private environment designed just for you and your neighbors.
Only real neighbors allowed:

Each member must verify their address to join so you know you can trust who you are sharing with.

Your personal information is safe;

We will never share your information with third parties.
>br> Read our commitment to privacy.

Over 17,000 neighborhoods are building stronger and safer places to call home.
