Getting your neighbors together for a cause is a bit tougher, block parties can help you learn more about them, what are their concerns for the neighborhood,
If you have 12 neighbors with 12 different concerns you need to prioritize and work together to check them off the list.
And show them that all of their concerns can be worked on in a timely manner, so they don't feel, "Well, they aren't working on what I want to so I am not participating."
Find out if they are already part of something that will help the neighborhood? Ask to join in.
M'b you can join an already established organization near you, so you can get the experience for organizing something that concerns your neighborhood specifically.
Homelessness/Needy/ Food Banks
Streets/Graffiti/ trash clean up
Plain Old Friendship/Community Connectedness i.e block parties
Good Luck and Thanks for Caring
