Body

Background:

The Neighborhood Resource Center (NRC) was established by the City of Delray Beach in the fall of 2006 under the Neighborhood Services Division of the Community Improvement Department to assist residents with creating and maintaining quality neighborhoods where people want to live. The NRC is a collaboration of several services under one roof in concert with the City’s administration.  All segments participate in addressing the needs of residents to improve the quality of life for our neighbors and their families.  Our goal is to engage residents in the planning process to address physical, social and economic needs of the community. 

 

The NRC serves to enrich the quality of life and promote a sense of community through the delivery and connection of services that educate, develop leadership skills and promote volunteerism, civic engagement and productive lifestyles. The NRC is located at 141 SW 12th Avenue.
