About Us

Good Neighbors is a multi-departmental, faith-based community development corporation serving residents and businesses throughout the tri-state area. We provide community outreach social and educational programs that address and correct today's most pressing social problems such as unemployment, economic under-development, the disintegration of the family as a social unit, inadequate public education, child care, insufficient housing conditions and immigration/citizenship issues.

We are a non-profit organization located in the Northeast section of the Bronx that leverages and deploys a wide diversity of public, private and community-based resources along with comprehensive technical and practical training.

We seek to stimulate economic development in our community by providing superior instruction, counseling and programs that assist clients to:

(a) secure and retain meaningful employment
(b) attain appropriate training and education
(c) pursue entrepreneurial aspirations to fulfillment
(d) develop a purpose-oriented life strategy and implement prudent fiscal management of their income
(e) obtain and maintain adequate housing and a suitable living environment
(f) achieve greater participation in the affairs of the community

We provide services intended to address the problems related to unemployment, economic under-development, lack of educational opportunities, as well as housing and immigration assistance.
