RNeighbors empowers citizen leaders to create sustainable neighborhood networks that promote a vibrant, healthy, and livable community.
In 2001, the City Council of Rochester acted on an identified need to provide additional support to groups of neighbors who were working on projects that would benefit the city’s neighborhoods. The Rochester Neighborhood Resource Center was incorporated as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and began serving neighborhood associations (NAs) in 2001.
The center, now known as RNeighbors, serves as a resource center helping Rochester’s neighbors build community by providing tools to grow great neighborhoods. RNeighbors supports neighborhoods by nurturing Neighborhood Associations , reviving dormant Neighborhood Associations, and providing tools to help sustain and grow active associations.
