Neighborhood Empowerment Network
In 2007, an alliance of residents, neighborhood and merchant associations, non profits and faith based organizations, foundations and academic institutions was created around a simple mission, empowering the neighborhoods of San Francisco with the capacity to make their neighborhood be the best place to live on earth.

The alliance named itself the Neighborhood Empowerment Network (NEN) and over the last five years it has leveraged the immense resources and expertise within it ranks to create a ground breaking suite of tools resources and methodologies to advance resilience at the community level in a bottom up grass roots approach.
