Each June, NeighborWorks America and its network of local organizations mobilize tens of thousands of volunteers, businesspeople, neighbors, friends, and local and national elected and civic leaders in a week of neighborhood change and awareness. Since its inception in 1983, NeighborWorks Week showcases how the NeighborWorks network strengthens communities and celebrates our collective impact as a network. OCC staff have participated in the NeighborWorks Week event for many years. Below are some photos of OCC staff participation in NeighborWorks Week events in Washington, D.C.
