NeighborImpact Featured in New Publication
Central Oregon nonprofit NeighborImpact is featured in a new book, “NeighborWorks Works: Practical Solutions from America’s Community Development Network.” The book was released last week. The book highlights innovative solutions to affordable housing and community development challenges.
“Community-based nonprofits are creating economic opportunity for more Americans through cross-sector collaborations, complementary investments and collective problem-solving,” says Paul Weech, Chief Executive Officer of NeighborWorks America. “This book will allow us to share what works, as well as what doesn’t work – an important part of innovation.”
The NeighborImpact story, included in a chapter on nonprofit excellence, highlights a highly successful partnership between NeighborImpact and Central Oregon’s local television station, KTVZ. “Our story highlights our longstanding relationship with KTVZ through the 21 Cares for Kids program,” says Scott Cooper, Executive Director for NeighborImpact. “This partnership helps get the word to our community about critical services by providing more than 6,000 30-second commercial spots per year. That’s more than 50 hours of airtime annually, well beyond what a typical non-profit could afford without a generous community partner.”
NeighborImpact is a member of the NeighborWorks network—more than 240 nonprofit organizations based in every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. The network was founded and is supported by NeighborWorks America, which creates opportunities for people to live in affordable homes, improve their lives and strengthen their communities. As a member of the NeighborWorks network, NeighborImpact has been rigorously assessed for high standards of performance and operation. Members are regularly audited and evaluated to ensure the excellence of the network.
The book may be purchased on Amazon and general information about the book is available at http://NeighborWorksAmerica.com/book.
