I want to point you toward the ISS Neighbors Campaign Blog
This is an ambitious and challenging partnership between Impact Silver Spring and Montgomery County to reach out through doorknocking to 5000 households to connect residents to services, information, opportunities and each other. They are just starting this campaign – and learning tons every day. Its a really impressive effort to get intentional about place-based network building AND developing a doorknocking and one-on-one approach that is tailored to opening up opportunities for relationship building and human connections. I am going down to MD next week to do some doorknocking myself.
