The Neighboring Initiative

The Vision

We envision neighbors joining one another to participate with God in creating neighborhoods that reflect the Kingdom.

The Mission

The Neighboring Initiative exists to develop resources to equip Christians with healthy postures, principles, and practices for relocating to culturally and economically diverse neighborhoods.


The Process

The Neighboring Initiative is a collaborative effort of representatives from CenterForm, Polis Institute and EIRO. They have brought together intentional neighbors and relocators from all over Atlanta for a year long collaborative research and learning process to develop a curriculum for Christians interested in relocating into communities among those from different ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds.
