About Us

We are Westside neighbors working toward a livable and sustainable future.

Neighbors West-Northwest is the neighborhood coalition representing 7 Northwest and 4 Southwest Neighborhood Associations. The geographic area of our coalition area encompasses one of the most varied sections of Portland, Oregon where heavy industry, commerce and a variety of residential communities co-exist with large, pristine natural areas and riparian habitats.

NWNW provides a number of different services and programs to neighborhoods and residents within our boundaries. These services range from administrative and communications support to technical assistance, grants, and financial support or fiscal sponsorship of our constituent neighborhoods and aligned community organizations.

NWNW also offers a key channel for the city and elected officials to quickly disseminate information to a wide range of neighbors. This all leads to greater livability and harmony in our thriving urban center.
