Best Neighborhoods

Leon County was selected as one of 13 project sites across Florida by The Governor’s Commission on Volunteerism & Community Service to “Build – Engage – Sustain – Transform” neighborhoods by mobilizing volunteers based on the “neighboring” model of empowerment and facilitation.


Leon County’s BEST Neighborhoods Program engages neighborhoods in assessing resources and identifying the talents and unique gifts of its residents in developing solutions and implementing projects that create positive change in their community.

Leon County’s BEST Neighborhoods Program has facilitated a number of partnerships with community and faith-based organizations to improve neighborhoods by creating community food gardens, beautifying common areas, and educating on disaster preparedness.  Leon County’s BEST Neighborhoods Program also has a strong emphasis engaging and serving our country’s veterans.
