Join a Block Club

Block clubs are essential to the quality of life for the individual and to the neighborhood. People need to be involved as much as possible in what goes on in their neighborhood to ensure success. Everyone is welcome to attend block clubs and if you can’t make the one in your area, you can attend the one closest to you. If you check the schedule and there is not one in your immediate area, perhaps we can get one going.

Why join a block club?

  • There is strength in numbers;
  • To socialize and build relationships with your neighbors;
  • To collectively address crime and safety issues;
  • To stay informed about community events;
  • To meet with city and police officials;
  • Write grants that improve the neighborhood;
  • Plan neighborhood events;
  • Find out about volunteer opportunities;
  • Develop leadership skills and get training;
  • Create a telephone tree to better communicate.
