What We Do

Founded in 1975, the Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods Inc. (NECN) is a dynamic 501c3 nonprofit organization comprised of 12 culturally diverse and vibrant inner North and Northeast Portland Neighborhoods and their Asssociations.  We house many distinct community programs and fulfill numerous functions: gathering place, idea and project incubator, and outreach service provider connecting community members to resources from agencies and organizations. Our 12 neighborhoods are: Alameda, Boise, Concordia, Eliot, Grant Park, Humbolt, Irvington, King, Sabin, Sullivan's Gulch, Vernon, and Woodlawn. 

The neighborhood associations are volunteer-run groups of community members (residents, business owners, organization representatives, etc) who advocate for their neighborhood through addressing issues such as land use, transportation, public safety, clean-up and mentorship of new leadership as well as identifying community priorities and opportunities.  NECN staff provides resources to support, train and empower volunteer leaders.  We encourage anyone to get involved and become an active part of his or her neighborhood!
