Community Outreach

Community Outreach

Interfaith Neighbors’ Community Outreach plays an integral part in offering valuable programs to assist area residents in meeting life’s basic necessities. In order to build a stronger relationship, it is important for our communities to know who we are and what we are about.

Community Outreach Specialist Diane Shelton

We do this by working within the communities to build relationships and partnerships.  Our Community Outreach Specialist acts as a liaison between the programs offered by Interfaith Neighbors, local community programs and services, and community members.

Interfaith Neighbors has learned from its grantors, its philanthropic peers, and others in the field of community revitalization.   Receiving the valuable input of Westside residents in all planning processes has been ongoing through neighborhood surveys conducted, interviews, and presence at community gatherings and meetings.

Commencing in April 2016, youth, adults and community service organizations came together to successfully identify community strengths, challenges, and to discuss strategies for the submittal of the Wells Fargo Regional Foundation Planning Grant. This collaboration propelled Interfaith Neighbors’ action and eventual award of a Wells Fargo Regional Foundation Implementation Grant.
