A partnership between the Oakland Housing Authority and the Attitudinal Healing Connection, Inc.
Since 2009, AHC, in partnership with the Oakland Housings Authority, created and currently implements an innovative program known as the Good Neighbor Program (GNP). It is a powerful curriculum, grounded in the principles and processes of Attitudinal Healing, and is designed to lift up the base in our culture. The Good Neighbor Program (GNP) offers two curriculums for personal and community change: The Neighborhood Orientation Workshop and the Neighborhood Leadership Institute. Both programs are Attitudinal Healing innovations. We have accomplished the following:
Neighborhood Orientation Workshop (NOW)
NOW is a 4-hour workshop for OHA customers that offers training in community building, core values, civic engagement and other opportunities OHA offers, such as resources and service learning.
Neighborhood Leadership Institute (NLI)
The Neighborhood Leadership Institute was conceptualized as a means to support Oakland residents to build their inner transformational tools, skills, service learning and resources in order to create more positive communities, schools and safe neighborhoods for themselves and their families, despite the negative influences and challenging circumstances many of them experience.
