Block Leaders Initiative

When we do not know our neighbors, isolation, crime and mistrust increase. A reality of today is that most of us do not know our neighbors.

WE CARE Palestine believes that friendships with our neighbors must be intentionally developed and nurtured. The Block Leaders initiative helps facilitate neighbors to become caring friends—respecting, talking and walking together.

WE CARE Palestine is looking for private citizens in all neighborhoods who are willing to reach out on the block where they live to forge relationships that are more than a passing wave or neighborly hello. These citizens, called Block Leaders, receive training and support to build friendships on their block. They join with other block leaders from across the city on a regular basis to develop relationships with neighbors across the city.
