Since its inception in 1983, NeighborWorks Week is an annual week of service that showcases how, together with residents, the NeighborWorks network strengthens communities. Held during the first full week in June, NeighborWorks Week also celebrates our collective impact as a network. It’s a time not only to give back in our communities but also to acknowledge the thousands of volunteers, business partners, national and civic leaders who stand with us to help deliver on our critical mission.
This year’s theme is “Empowering Communities for Success.” That’s what we do as a network of organizations with the goal of enriching lives. NeighborWorks network organizations: Visit the member site to preview the grant application

Traditionally, NeighborWorks Week is celebrated with various creative local events, where neighbors gather in groups to volunteer in communities and participate in activities such as building playgrounds, cleaning up trash and beautifying shared spaces, rehabilitating homes for older residents, hosting food festivals, and so much more.
After two years of mostly virtual events, this year promises a return to in-person activities, bringing together neighbors in their neighborhoods once again. Other network organizations will continue to be together virtually and find new ways to forge community connections. Still others will showcase what they do in their communities by teaching classes, hosting open houses or hosting a corporate volunteer event. But NeighborWorks Week is about more than events: It’s also about camaraderie and raising awareness about our organizations' work.
This week, we salute our network's efforts and tremendous accomplishments, and we will uplift their work and continue to champion the needs of the communities and people we serve. We are grateful to be able to say that we have partners and organizations that stand beside us and also are committed to ensuring housing security, community stability and equality, and consumer financial health.
