Lisa Braun, Executive Director, Ohio City Power and Tom O'Brien, Program Director, Neighborhood Connections at the Cleveland Foundation, in conversation about how relationship building programs accelerate community capacity for transformational change.


Lisa shares the story of how Ohio City Power collaborates to serve regional organizations, amplify resource access, strengthen community and network reach to turbo charge human success stories.


Tom talks about what Neighborhood Connections is, it's legacy and how since 2003, the organization has invested in community-based projects that build relationships in neighborhoods and across Northeast Ohio. Tom also explains how the citizen-lead Neighborhood Connections funding process works.


If you're interested, start by attending a Neighbor Up! Network Night gathering, hosted by Neighborhood Connections the first Thursday of every month, 6pm – 8pm at the University Circle United Methodist Church, 1919 E. 107th Street, Cleveland, Ohio.
