SAY partners build sustainable change in our neighborhoods

This summer, SAY launched Neighbors Knowing Neighbors (NKN) –  a partnership of area organizations that work together to ensure every child in Oak Park feels known, cared for, and listened to by adults in their neighborhood. 

The Oak Park Regional Housing Center identified neighborhoods where residents face obstacles to connecting and hired interns from those communities to organize a series of block parties. 

The interns managed the process from initial planning and outreach through clean-up. Residents were encouraged to participate and received a block party packet with information they will use to plan and manage future gatherings. Next summer, the NKN partnership will reach out to new neighborhoods, to build sustainable change in our community.
