The mission of Neighborhood Partners is to strengthen and enhance all of Rock Island's neighborhoods by:
Building stronger working relationships among neighborhoods, city government, service agencies, schools, churches and businesses; and
Improving quality of life and pride in Rock Island neighborhoods through education, resident self-sufficiency and enhanced, user-friendly services.
Membership is granted to organizations by Rock Island City Council. Once appointed, organizational members appoint two delegates to serve on the Neighborhood Partners board. One-third of members are reserved for city at-large delegates. Members must meet criteria related to sufficient organization and neighborhood-based mission. Associate members, which are usually emerging neighborhood associations, are encouraged.
