About the NEN

Eight years ago, a cohort of agencies from all sectors came together around a single mission: to build truly resilient neighborhoods that could withstand stress of any kind at the individual, organizational and community levels.

Inspired by stories from New Orleans, New York City and Christchurch, New Zealand, this cohort—soon branded the Neighborhood Empowerment Network (NEN)—set out to create a system to support communities as they craft and implement resilience strategies. The NEN hopes this bottom-up approach will restore communities’ rightful ownership of this important mission, reversing the long-standing trend of top-down control of disaster management.

THE NEN METHOD

The NEN leverages strategic partnerships to develop programs, tools and technical resources that neighborhood stakeholders can utilize as they build thriving communities that are well-positioned to navigate times of stress.
