WE INVITE YOU

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

Home: Welcome

WHO WE ARE

The Good Neighbor Collective Inc. is a New York City-based 501c3 nonprofit grassroots initiative dedicated to connecting neighbors through mutual aid and empowerment, one block at a time. The Collective serves as a platform for collaboration by bridging the gap between neighbors with differing socioeconomic backgrounds because we are stronger together.

We aim to harness the collective power of residents and local businesses in every community to contribute to and support those who are under-served in our neighborhoods. Every member of the community is a source of growth and through their collective knowledge and action, lives are uplifted.

The Good Neighbor Collective knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by but most importantly through the actions of our four seasonal programs. These programs range from spreading holiday cheer to supplying youth with the necessary supplies to start the school year on the right foot. The initiation of our integrated events and series serves to give all neighbors from all walks of life the opportunity to build lasting and impactful relationships.

SCHOOL SUPPLY DONATION DRIVES

We strive to find new strategies for dealing with the lack of access to school supplies. It is a challenge we aim to address through donation drives. Contact us to host a drive in your building, school or community center for your neighbors in need. You can also help us purchase supplies by making a donation towards this cause here.

THANKSGIVING GIVING

Each Thanksgiving we partner with a local restaurant to provide complimentary meals for families in need. Residents in the area pick up their take out to enjoy with their loved ones during Thanksgiving week.

WINTER WISHES

Each holiday season, we work to identify neighbors who do not have the means to receive gifts and pair them with a wish granter. The program connects neighbor to neighbor to experience the magic of the holidays in a personal and heartful way. Help us run this program by making a donation here.

GIVE THE GIFT OF READING FOR BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Black books allow us to immerse ourselves in the resilience and wonderment of blackness both past and present. Give the gift of reading to local families in need while also supporting black authors and a local black owned bookstore. 

With your support, we will be purchasing and distributing black books to residents in nearby local public housing units.


There is no denying the power of representation in all facets of society.  With this initiative, we aim to give access to diverse books to our diverse community.

JANICE ROSARIO

Founder

Janice Rosario’s passion for community building stems from growing up in New York City, where despite the density of people, the dearth of true community was ever-present. “In New York City, it’s common to see one street block hosting public housing alongside luxury buildings. Despite such proximity, these residents will rarely, if ever, interact; let alone truly connect.” Janice believes that by activating the residents within residential proximity, gaps in inequality will be narrowed while creating a space for the intersection between neighbors.
