NRC to debut Block Party Toolkit during Best. Week. Ever, May 29 & 30

NRC has a new program in the works! We’re excited to be unveiling our Block Party Toolkit (twice!) during South Bend’s signature Best. Week. Ever. celebration. 

On Tuesday’s Rebel Art Festival or Wednesday’s Best Wednesday Ever, grab a friend and come try "giant" Jenga, "giant" Yahtzee, cornhole, and more -- all part of the Neighborhood Resources Connection's new Block Party Toolkit, a collection of everything you need to host a fun, outdoor neighborhood event -- all free for your recognized South Bend neighborhood organization to borrow. While you're here, check out the other items in the Toolkit, including a pop-up canopy, tables, PA system, yard signs, even a wagon to haul it all. 

We’ll also unveil the details on how your recognized neighborhood organization can borrow the toolkit, so stop by NRC’s Best. Pop-up Block Party. Ever. on May 29, or May 30. More Information.

South Bend pilot program provides transportation for workers

Transportation (or lack of it) has a huge impact on the quality of life in a neighborhood. Thanks to the City of South Bend - Municipal Government's Office of Engagement and Economic Empowerment for piloting this creative solution. From the South Bend Tribune: “A city program seeking to help workers who struggle with reliable transportation to and from work is moving forward in a pair of pilots using ride-share service Uber. Spearheaded by the South Bend office of engagement and economic empowerment, which was established in January, the first-of-its-kind program is funded by a $100,000 grant awarded in February from the Bloomberg Mayors Challenge.”  Read more.
